The Smallest Batch of Cookies...EVER!

Sometimes I get a craving at night for cookies. Cookies are my 1st choice of dessert, and because they are so tempting to me I sometimes don't want alot of them around. I also sometimes don't want to cook a million batches late at takes too much time.
My sister Lana and I, most of the time resort to making a batch of No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Cookies (I need to post this one, recipe to come). We have dwindled down the recipe so that it makes only about four or five cookies. That recipe is easy to downsize because it has no eggs or baking soda in it.
This cookie recipe is awesome for those times where you want a batch of chocolate chip cookies but don't want a ton..just enough to satisfy a craving. There are many variations to this recipe. Try putting whatever chips, nuts, or candy you want in them. For a peanut butter taste, add a tablespoon of peanut butter to the mix. If you want oats, add 2 tablespoons of oats. If you don't have a measuring spoon that measures out 1/8th of a tsp...eyeball it using the 1/4th measure.

The Smallest Batch of Cookies...EVER!

3 tbs butter, softened
3 tbs sugar
3 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs egg (crack egg into bowl, whisk it really good, and measure it into a measuring spoon.)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt (just slightly under)
1/2 c flour
however many chips or mix ins you want (about 1/3 c)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter and sugar until creamy. Add vanilla and egg, mix well. Add baking soda, salt and flour, mix until combined. Add mix-ins. Spoon dough onto cookie sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes or until desired doneness. Makes about 8 cookies.

HA! What a great idea for the small batch. I sure know what you mean about NOT wanting them sitting there looking at you the next day!

I love this idea... Pretty soon we will have it down to yielding only one cookie! Who said math wasn't important???
