A tiny treat

We teach primary. It's a lot of fun, but with eight 5-year-olds it can get noisy and a little crazy. We have admittedly resorted to bribery. I made these tiny, adorable cookies yesterday before church (they're so quick and easy!) and they were a hit. The recipe is from the food blog, Two Peas and Their Pod, which has about a million and ten great cookie recipes.


Here it is:
(makes about 3 dozen minis - I cut it in half and got 20 cookies)

1 3/4 c flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1/2 c unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/3 c granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 t vanilla
3/4 c mini chocolate chips

directions: (these are her words straight from the blog)

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.


I only took one little picture, and it was right after I flattened the little dough balls right before cooking them. Also, I may have made mine bigger than hers (or our oven is in the fritz), but my cookies had to cook longer than 8 minutes. Just watch them.

Our class loved them, and I didn't feel bad about indulging their requests for having two, since they were so itty bitty.
