I had my first guest over in my new apartment today (yay) and it was a classmate of mine. We wanted chocolate chip cookies but had a hard time finding a recipe for a small batch (and didn’t want to eat seven dozen cookies between us). SO we came across this recipe to make a small batch of chocolate chip cookies.
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
- 5 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons granulated white sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 1/2 tablespoon milk (+ extra splash)
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (we used 60% Ghirardelli)
Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugars. To this bowl, add the egg yolk, milk, and vanilla extract. Combine the dry and wet ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips. If the dough is too cakey, add an extra splash of milk. Chill the dough for an hour. Bake at 350*F for about 13-15 minutes (until the edges are browned). Cookies will firm as they cool.
We were so pleased with the cookies! The dough worked out perfectly – a combination of using the egg yolk, eggs, chilling, and timing.
*Side note: we decided to dedicate a (post exam) day to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. Inspiration will be taken from this post… now all we need are hungry friends to feed.
