Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Even though I have a ton of pumpkin recipes to post I figured I would give you all a break (a short break- pumpkin lovers have no fear!) and post something non-pumpkin.

I made these cookies about 3 weeks ago but pumpkin mania got in the way of me posting them. I actually feel kinda bad for not posting them sooner as they are the perfect chewy chocolate chip cookie.

There is a certain store bought chocolate chip cookie that these remind me of. You know, the small uber chewy ones. These have the same chewy-ness but with a better flavor since they are homemade. Seriously, I had to give away the majority of these because I couldn't stop eating them!

I hope you will take a break from any pumpkin mania to make these little treasures... You won't be disappointed!

Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 35o degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.

2. In medium bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda together. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla extract.

4. Slowly mix in the flour, until combined. Stir in mini chocolate chips.

5. Roll dough into tiny balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough. Place on baking sheet and slightly flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake for 8 minutes or until cookies are golden brown and set. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Mint and chocolate never appeal to me but yet I like it when I eat it. Weird, right?!

Mark's favorite cookie is the classic chocolate chip so I will have to make some of these for him.

I marked these when Maria posted them, now seeing yours makes me want to make them SOON. Yours look just like those certain store-bought chewy ccc's.

there are so many chocolate chip cookie recipes out there. this one is by far my favorite. Its basically the levain clone recipe. due to the high flour content in this recipe, you have to underbake them otherwise they come out like hard little rocks. if u bake em right, this is the best cookie ever. i do 6-7 min and then freeze them. BTW: unless u like hard little rocks type cookies (lotta people dont like soft doughy ish cookies)
