Mini-Chip Cookies

Tonight I'm baking mini-chip cookies for my co-workers.  We've had a very busy week, always the case this time of year.  And this is just the beginning.  So...I'm thinking that a batch of home-made chocolate chip cookies is a perfect way to give ourselves a pat on the back and say thank-you to a great group of people.

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 eggs
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.
