|I think this is the first time I've ever washed a quarter. But I wanted you to get an idea of the size of the cookies.|
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 heaping cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl cream together the butter with the brown sugar until light and fluffy. This will take 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the egg and vanilla to the bowl and mix until well incorporated.
Stir in the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder until well mixed. Do not over mix.
Add the chocolate chips and mix by hand.
Using a teaspoon cookie scoop (measuring spoon size not eating utensil size) or a teaspoon measuring spoon place mounds of cookie dough onto parchment covered cookie sheets. I got 20 per sheet.
If you want your finished cookies to be prettier add a couple of chocolate chips on top of each cookie. (This is totally optional.)
Bake one pan at a time at 325 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes. I baked mine for 8 1/2 minutes. Cookies will look slightly under-baked, but will continue cooking on the pan as they cool and will stay soft.
Cool for one minute on the pan; then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
If you have any left, store them in an air tight container.
(My cookie scoop measures 1 inch in diameter.)
