I put my hand in the picture to give you an idea of the size

As a special Friday treat, I decided to work on a dessert recipe in the Quest Kitchen. Surprisingly enough, the recipe does not involve pumpkin in any form. I was having a sweet craving and thankfully had some extra calories to spare last night.

I decided to try to create a small batch of chocolate chip cookies! By small, I mean just two nice sized cookies. The reasoning was to satisfy the sweet craving, to share with the kid, and to prevent any leftovers to trip me up later.

Twin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp milk or milk substitute (soy, rice, almond milk)
  • 1 Tbsp chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix everything but the milk and chips in a small bowl. Add the milk 1/2 tsp at a time until mixed into cookie dough consistency. Stir in chips. I used mini chocolate chips since that is what I had on hand. Regular ones are fine too and even chunkier. Mmmmm.

cookie doughSplit the dough in half and roll each half into a ball. Smoosh the balls into a cookie shape on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 or 9 minutes. Cool slightly if you can so you don’t burn your tongue. Since I used white flour, the cookies were a little pale.

Share with a friend or kid! If you want more than just two cookies, you can obviously double or triple the recipe, or multiply it out for even more. I used almond milk instead of regular milk because of food allergies. You can also sub applesauce for the oil if you want to cut fat.

I am reading a great book that encourages you to find a regular creative outlet and make something every day for a year. I’ve decided to give small batch baking recipes a try weekly or so. Mainly because I don’t need that many baked goodies, but also because I’m not sure I can do 365 variations… yet! Hopefully I can come up with some tasty versions for you and we’ll see how it goes.

Happy Friday and happy cookies! Let me know what you think of them.
