Mini-Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes nothing can satisfy like a glass of milk and a couple of chocolate chip cookies warm from the oven. Today was one of those days.

I have to mention here that I am not a fan of those huge, chewy, buttery bakery style chocolate chip cookies. I personally prefer my cookies to be a bit crisper, with just a touch of chewiness in the center. Butter is all well and good, but I don’t like a cookie that leaves a puddle of grease in its wake.

Consequently, I didn’t put too much butter into this recipe and I added a little bit of honey for some extra moistness. The honey will also keep the cookies moist after they’ve baked. The batter is thick and easy to work with, so you shouldn’t need to refrigerate them before baking unless it’s a very hot day. I also like using mini chocolate chips because they are more evenly distributed through the batter then regular chips. Unless you are using a lot of nuts and chips in all your cookies recipes, I’m sure that you have had cookies with almost no chips and cookies with a lot all in the same batch. No problems with that here!

If you prefer a chewy cookie, just reduce the baking time by about a minute and take the cookies out after they have turned a very light brown color.

Mini-Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, slightly softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp honey
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375F.
Combine flour, soda and salt and mix with a fork.
Cream together butter and sugars. Add egg and beat until fully incorporated. Stir in vanilla and honey.
Add dry ingredients to the sugar mixture in two additions. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cookies all golden all over.
Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to a rack.
Makes 36 2-inch cookies

    Hi again Nicole!

    Thought I should tell you I brought the cookies in to class today (I’m a grad student) and they disappeared so fast I hardly had a chance to grab one! This was two batches I baked, and fifteen people, so you do the math. Everyone raved about them, I mean really raved. Our prof said she liked the saltiness of the cookies, said choc chip are usually not salty enough. Almost everyone loved the chewiness. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful recipe!

    hi nic, i baked these cookies today! i followed the instructions to a T.. the aroma was awesome and they tasted good on the whole, except that my batter was rather watery, and resulted in my cookie being very soft in the centre. i baked at 190 degrees celcius.

    any idea what could have gone wrong?

    Brownielover – This batter is actually fairly stiff, in my experience. Perhaps you used two tablespoons of honey accidentally instead of two teaspoons? Maybe it was just a fluke!

    This are the most delicious cookies! They came out perfectly, except I was only able to make 24 cookies, the only change I made was using mini m&ms instead of chocolate chips. I’m going to give these as Christmas presents to my friends : )
