Simply the Best Small-Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies
From Small-Batch Baking for Chocolate Lovers
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon well-beaten egg or egg substitute
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional
Position oven rack in center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Place the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl; whisk to blend.
Place butter and sugars in a small, deep mixing bowl; beat with a hand-held electric mixer on low speed until blended, about 20 seconds. Add the egg and vanilla; reduce speed to medium, and beat until blended, about 10 seconds. Stir in flour mixture with a wooden spoon; then stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if using.
Spoon eight equal mounds of dough onto prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 1/2 to 3 inches apart. Bake until the cookies are golden brown, 12 to 13 minutes.
Remove baking sheet from oven, place on a wire rack, and let it cool 5 minutes. Carefully slide parchment paper, with cookies, onto wire rack and let cookies cool completely. Makes 8 cookies.
