Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

Lately I’ve been craving sweets. The other day I really wanted a chocolate chip cookie but with only two of us living in the house I knew it wouldn’t be a good idea to make a full batch. I would wind up eating them every day until they were gone (not good for the waistline). For the most part I try to eat healthy but I still need a treat every once and awhile. I gave in to my craving when I found this small batch recipe for chocolate chip cookies – perfect! I could have my cake (or cookie) and eat it too! This recipe yields about 8-10 cookies depending on the size you make them.
