I found this gorgeous mini cookie recipe on Two Peas & Their Pod ages and ages ago, I have been meaning to make them ever since.
Everyone loves a chocolate chip cookie and lets face it, mini really just means cuter!
These cookies came out really well, they are nice and chewy and have a lovely flavour. They also look pretty damn adorable!
I will definitely use this recipe again, these little cookies would make great cupcake toppers and yes, I have plans to make even tinier ones.
Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes around 3 dozen mini cookies
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 175C.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat to combine.
Gradually add the flour, folding until combined. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into tiny balls, around the size of a small grape and place on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each ball of dough slightly with the palm of your hand and bake for 8 minutes or until cookies are golden brown and set.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the baking sheet for two minutes.
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
I have had these little toy soldiers for ages and found them whilst hunting around for a prop that would suitably show how mini these little cookies are.
It's like cookie warfare, I love it!
Protect your cookie at all costs!
