Recipe type: Desserts
Makes: 8-12 cookies
Small Batch Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 60g (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 24g (2 tablespoons) solid vegetable shortening (I subbed softened unsalted butter)
  • 45g (1/4 cup) light brown sugar
  • 39g (3 tablespoons) granulated sugar
  • 25g (1 large) egg yolk
  • 4 milliliters (3/4 teaspoon) vanilla extract
  • 75g (1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons) all-purpose flour
  • 1g (1/4 teaspoon) baking soda
  • 1g (1/4 teaspoon) baking powder
  • ½g (1/8) teaspoon fine salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 55g (1/3 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat; set aside
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, beat butter, shortening and sugars on medium-high speed until well combined (about one minute); add egg yolk and vanilla and mix on medium speed until combined
  3. In a separate small bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and espresso powder; slowly add to mixer while on low speed and mix just until combined; stir in chocolate chips
  4. Spoon cookie dough into prepared baking sheet (I used a medium cookie dough scoop) and bake 8-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned; remove from baking sheet and place on a wire rack to cool (or better yet, eat warm out of the oven!)
I got 10 cookies with a medium cookie dough scoop
