Description

Most cookie recipes make 3-4 dozen cookies. That’s too many tempting calories sitting on my counter. I’ve found that 1 dozen cookies is just enough for today’s craving with a few left over for the next day.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 2 Tablespoons Shortening
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 whole Large Egg Yolk
  • ¾ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ½ cups Plus 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅛ teaspoons Instant Espresso Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ⅓ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment or a silicone mat.

In a medium bowl, cream the butter, shortening, brown sugar and granulated sugar together. Beat very well, about 45 seconds. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and beat until combined.

In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients (everything except chocolate chips) and add this mixture in 2 batches into the creamed butter, beating just to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips. Make 12 dough balls (roll them in your hand), space them evenly on the cookie sheet and bake for 8-9 minutes.

I made these tonight and was very impressed. I adapted the recipe into snickerdoodles rather than chocolate-chip, and found them absolutely delicious! I also ended up with 14 cookies, but I used a little scoop – easily makes a perfect dozen. Great job!
