Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

Saturday, April 4, 2015

Most nights, as soon as I get my girls tucked into their beds, my sweet tooth really starts to kick in. I love baked treats but Brian isn’t a big fan so it is way too dangerous to have an entire batch of cookies sitting around just waiting for me to eat all of them! To satisfy my cookie cravings, I like to make small batches of healthier chocolate chip cookies. This recipe makes either 4 large or 6 small cookies. Just the right amount for snuggling on the couch and catching up on the DVR!
