Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies are just that: a small batch of chocolate chip cookies! A brown sugar cookie dough is studded with just the right amount of chocolate chips and baked to golden brown perfection. The best cookie recipe for when you need a cookie fix without having a whole bunch leftover!
How many cookies does this recipe make?
Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies come out to be 12 perfectly round pucks of joy. Typically, a normal batch of chocolate chip cookies produces anywhere from 18-24 cookies, so this recipe is right in the middle for the perfect amount! When making the cookies, I like to use a medium-sized cookie scoop to ensure that all the cookies come out to be the same size. It’s roughly a rounded tablespoon full of cookie dough.

Tips for getting perfectly round cookies:
As I said earlier, I like to use a cookie scoop when making my cookies. This really helps them to be all the same size! Another tip that I have for getting round cookies: when the cookies come out of the oven, use your spatula to gently nudge the cookies into perfect circles if they are a little mis-shaped. Works like a charm! I do this almost every time I’m making cookies as well.
Can I freeze these cookies?
The answer is: yes! Here’s what I recommend you do:
- Make the cookie dough as directed.
- Use a cooke scoop to scoop the dough out onto a baking sheet.
- Freeze the cookie dough balls for a couple hours on the baking sheet.
- Transfer the frozen cookie dough balls to a freezer-safe bag/container.
- Bake a couple (or all of them) at 350 degrees whenever you need a cookie fix!
How great is that? You would have cookies ready in a snap of a finger whenever you get a cookie craving!
