It snowed in Atlanta. I made mini Chocolate Chip Cookies. The world is upside down!
Normally I wouldn’t pass up an opportunity the make the biggest, chewiest chocolate chip cookies ever but yesterday my Husband requested that he be allowed to form his own cookies for baking. As I peered over his shoulder, I thought smugly, “Oh those are way too tiny. He’ll be begging me to make his next round.” But then they came out of the oven and they were just so darn cute, I decided to make them all tiny!
So perfect with the mini chips. Sometimes my husband is just super right. He also named them: Silver Dollar Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are actual more quarter sized but who am I to rain on his parade?
The combination of mini chips (read: more chocolate in every bite) and coarse-grained sea salt is magical. It is a subtle salty compliment to the chocolate. I’m going to start using coarse sea salt in all my chocolate chip cookies. Let’s all take a moment to thank Shelly at Cookies and Cups for this revelation!
Do not be fooled by the little package. They still have a perfectly soft and chewy center with a crunchy, browned edge. Let’s take a closer look…
These mini cookies may sound like the perfect portion control but these lil guys are not a dieter’s friend. Unless you have the willpower of a monk. Because before you are even done savoring the sweet, salty taste of one, you are reaching for another.
Little bites of awesome.
Look! Two joined as one just in time for Valentine’s Day. Too cute.
Now you can, and I did, use this same batter to make larger/normal sized cookies and they will taste phenomenal!
The next photo is my Husband’s cameo appearance. He wanted to demonstrate just how itty bitty these lil’ guys are.
This may be my new favorite!
