Best Half-Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Jamie Renee

These cookies are a great, soft, chocolatey small batch perfect for a small family. They have a great chewy and soft texture and a delicious flavor! I got the recipe from a good friend a month ago and have made them four time since then. Easy to prepare and even easier to eat!

You were right! These are chocolaty, soft, and chewy! I let the first batch cook too long and they were crispy but still good. The second batch came out just right! And I ate them all up! Thanks!
