Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

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.

Mini Chocolate Chip CookiesI 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!

    1. Keep them in an airtight container on the counter. You can also put a piece of bread in with the cookies. It will keep the cookies extra soft.

  1. Have you tried other types of cookies as a mini version? Just wondering if bake times would follow the same for most. I think mini versions are so much cuter!

  2. These looked cute but tasted kind of bland (too flour-y) and took almost twice as long to bake as listed – and even then, they never really browned. I like the mini idea but will use a different recipe next time.
