One-Bite Cookie Morsels

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Elevated Edibles: One-Bite Cookie Morsels! Years ago while traveling with my husband on a business trip, we had dinner at a popular local restaurant that extended a warm welcome to all who crossed its threshold. Before approaching the hostess stand, we were immediately greeted by the bakery-fresh aromas of homemade cookies. How delightful! On the dessert showcase, to our right, sat a plate of one-bite chocolate chip cookies with a table tent that said, “Please Take One”. I assure you, we didn’t hesitate as we munched away following the hostess to a nice, secluded corner booth. Talk about a memorable experience.

ONE-BITE COOKIE MORSELS

Ingredients:

1 1/3 cups flour

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg, room temperature

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup mini chocolate chips, plus more for topping

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and sea salt. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. Using a mixer, beat softened butter, brown sugar, and sugar on medium speed until well combined. Mix in egg and vanilla extract. Reduce speed to Low and slowly add dry ingredients. Mix until combined. Fold in mini chocolate chips. Scoop 1/2 tablespoon-sized mounds of cookie dough, form into a ball, press 2-3 mini chocolate chips into top, and place onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 5-6 minutes; remove from oven. Allow to cool for 2 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack.
