Here's my recipe for mini-chip cookies (I was going to make traditional chocolate chip cookies, but only had a bag of mini chips in my pantry). These are large cookies, about 3-3.5 inches in diameter. The recipe makes 3 dozen large cookies or 6 dozen if you use rounded teaspoons rather than tablespoons.
Oven 350 degrees F
Line cookie sheet with parchment paper
2 bars butter, melted
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
12 oz. mini chocolate chips
In saucepan, melt butter. Turn off heat. Stir in sugars and vanilla extract. Stir well and allow to cool for about 15-20 minutes. Place butter/sugar mixture in large mixer bowl. Beat for a minute or two. Add eggs, one at time, beating well after each addition. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until very well combined. Stir in mini-chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls (I use a mini-scoop) onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 mintues at 350 degrees F until just beginning to brown around the edges. Don't overbake.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes. Transfer cookies to cooking rack.
Makes 3 dozen large or 6 dozen small cookies.
