Small Batch Mint Chocolate Cookies

Small batch baking is a wonderful thing. Make only what you need so you're not tempted to eat too much. For some reason I didn't have semi sweet chocolate chips! I had to use what I did have, which turned out to be mint chocolate chips. If you don't like mint chocolate, feel free to use semi sweet.

Mine weren't crackly like they should have been, and they weren't as flat but they were still pretty darn tasty!

Makes 12 small cookies

2oz mint chocolate chips
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon beaten egg
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with a silicone pad, or parchment paper.

Place the chocolate chips and butter in a bowl and microwave for about a minute or until melted. Stir until well combined.

Stir in the brown sugar, vanilla and egg until well mixed.

Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir again until well combined.

Using a small cookie scoop, place the cookies on the cookie sheet. Bake for about 6 minutes. The cookies will puff up a bit and spread out.

Remove from the oven and rest on the sheet for a few minutes. If you try to move them right away, they'll fall apart. Transfer to a wire wrack to cool completely.
