Chocolate chip cookies are an American icon, and these miniature ones achieve the perfect balance of flavor.
  • 1 1/4 sticks (10 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips (7 1/2 oz)
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • Beat together butter, sugar, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy, then beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour and mix at low speed until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Drop barely rounded 1/2 teaspoons of dough about 1 1/2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets and bake in batches in middle of oven until golden brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer cookies as baked to a rack to cool.
