Bite-Sized Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

You know Paradise Bakery's chipper cookies? Of course you know the ones. Those little bite-sized morsels of heaven that you buy a bag of at the mall food court in hopes of snacking on them throughout your movie, but then end up eating them all while in line for popcorn. I put my kitchen to the test to make my own at-home version with lots of molasses-rich brown sugar, a crunchy exterior, and a perfectly doughy interior. These are the perfect cookies for anytime of the day or for any event as a dessert or even a party favor. However, this batch never made it out of the house. All fingers are pointing to my fiance. 

Bite-Sized Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. 

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and the sugar together until no sugar lumps remain. Add in the egg and mix well until combined. Scrape down the sides while mixing as needed. Add in the vanilla and mix again for 1 minute.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, soda, cinnamon, cornstarch, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, 1/3 at a time mixing well between each addition. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop 1 tbsp. of dough at a time onto 2 non-stick cookie sheets. Bake for 6-7 minutes, just until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
