Cook’s Notes: 12 perfect chocolate chip cookies, just enough to satisfy a craving. It’s quick to whip up a batch of cookies that uses just one baking sheet.
2 T plus 2 tsp butter at room temperature
2 T brown sugar
2 T granulated sugar
2 T egg, well beaten (beat 1 large egg in a small bowl; then measure out 2 T)
1/4 tsp vanilla
3/8 c flour
scant 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 c mini chocolate chips
Using an electric stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and beat just until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 8 to 9 minutes or just until edges are light brown. Be careful not to cook these too long. They will continue to cook for a while after you take them out of the oven.
