Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

I got home from the BlogHer Food Conference last night. All I can say right now is, wow! My mind and heart are still full. I am honored and grateful to be a part of such a powerful, talented, and inspirational community. I haven’t had time to even unpack yet, so pictures and details will have to come later. Instead, I am sharing my mini chocolate chip cookie recipe today.

I love mini desserts. They are adorable. I have made mini cupcakes, tarts, and breads, but surprisingly, not cookies. I don’t know why because you all know I have a cookie obsession. I recently made a batch of mini chocolate chip cookies that were almost too cute to eat.

I used mini chocolate chips and made the cookies really small, about two teaspoons of dough per cookie. The cookies were perfectly round and tiny. When Josh saw the cookies he thought I bought them from the store. Um, no-I don’t buy my cookies, I bake them:) These mini chocolate chip cookies are soft, with a chewy edge. Mini chocolate chips are the perfect size for these itty bitty cookies.

If you like mini desserts, try baking a batch of mini chocolate chip cookies. They are perfect for kids, baby showers, or snacking. Good things come in small packages!

Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: Makes 3 dozen mini cookies

Cook Time: 8 minutes


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.

2. In medium bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda together. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla extract.

4. Slowly mix in the flour, until combined. Stir in mini chocolate chips.

5. Roll dough into tiny balls, about 2 teaspoons of dough. Place on baking sheet and slightly flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake for 8 minutes or until cookies are golden brown and set. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    These look delicious (as usual) and I love your photographs. I kept reading “mint” chocolate chip cookies and couldn’t figure out where the mint was coming from– haha! I’m excited to hear about Blog Her Food!

    Just made mini cookies a few weeks ago – I found they’re quite dangerous. :)

  18. Tracy — October 11, 2010 @ 9:12 am

    Oh, I love these! They remind me of the ones my mom used to buy at the bakery. I can’t wait to try them!

    The cookies look great. How many do you have to eat to equal a full-sized cookie? :)

  25. naomi — October 11, 2010 @ 11:34 am

      You are welcome:)

  26. Michelle — October 11, 2010 @ 11:49 am

    I love making Mini Cookies, for some reason they taste better mini then maxi!

  27. the urban baker — October 11, 2010 @ 12:03 pm

    these look almost too perfect to be homemade. they remind me(in looks only) of the junk I grew up on that came in that horrible white and pink, glossy bag. I can tell by your ingredients that these are above and beyond what I ate as a kid. I loved hanging out with you this weekend. What a special time for us all! Friends for life!

    • twopeas replied: — October 11th, 2010 @ 3:35 pm

      Friends for life indeed! Love and miss you!

  28. Cristie — October 11, 2010 @ 1:04 pm

    Glad to here you had a nice time at the conference. Mini cookies are nice, you can stop at one or take a few :)

  29. Heather D — October 11, 2010 @ 1:11 pm

    Those cookies are perfect!! Do you use a scoop? Yummy!!

    • twopeas replied: — October 11th, 2010 @ 3:35 pm

      I used a little spoon.

  30. Katrina — October 11, 2010 @ 1:49 pm

    Love minis! And LOVE, LOVE ccc’s. Glad you had a great time at BlogHer. Can’t wait to hear more about it.

  31. Rene Rodgers — October 11, 2010 @ 2:29 pm

    These look adorable! I’m totally going to have to make them and bring them to school to share! Maybe I’ll do it on an exam day and give them out in class to get brownie points from the professor….hmmmm…

  32. Michelle @ Brown Eyed Baker — October 11, 2010 @ 2:30 pm

    These are absolutely adorable!! I love how mini they are and that they are still soft and chewy. Will definitely need to try these!

  33. Paula — October 11, 2010 @ 3:00 pm

    Glad that you enjoyed your conference! These cookies are so cute. I’ll have no problem eating a handful…or two. Will have to try sometime as I’ve never made mini cookies yet.

  34. Cookin' Canuck — October 11, 2010 @ 3:10 pm

    These are the perfect size for my boys’ lunch boxes and after-school treats.

  35. Amnah — October 11, 2010 @ 4:45 pm

    Oh, oh I love mini desserts! These are adorable. I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe I always use, but I think I’m going to try yours next time.

  36. Heather I. — October 11, 2010 @ 5:22 pm

    Haha, I’m the same way about not buying cookies. Why should I when homemade taste a million times better? Those are adorable!!

  37. Brooke@foodwoolf — October 11, 2010 @ 6:02 pm

    There’s something so psychologically appealing about small desserts. I just love to eat a handful and pretend I ate almost nothing! A great recipe and beautiful photos. Lovely lovely lovely spending time with you up in SF. Can’t wait to have more time in the future! xoxoxo, Brooke

    • twopeas replied: — October 12th, 2010 @ 7:31 am

      Brooke-I loved spending time with you as well. Hopefully we can meet up again and soon:)
