BEDO: Insta-Cookies


Yesterday I came home from work to a dinner already being prepared — Chris was making dinner, and I didn’t have to do anything but enjoy it. It was great!

But after dinner, I suddenly found myself in the kitchen anyway; I wanted chocolate chip cookies. I don’t know if my body just didn’t know what to do without getting its kitchen quota in for the day, or if I was just having an inexplicable craving, but I ended up baking some cookies from scratch.

I’ve baked from this recipe before, but I always halve it. It made 16 good-sized cookies yesterday, but probably would’ve made about 20 if I hadn’t nom’d away on some raw dough (I know I’m not supposed to, Mom, but I always do anyway).

Flawless Half-Batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies (Adapted from Gimme Some Oven)


  • 1/2 c + 1 T butter, softened
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (any size you’d like)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet.
  2. Beat together the butter and sugars until smooth.
  3. Add and mix in the egg, vanilla, and baking soda.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Add and mix into the batter.
  5. Mix in the chocolate.
  6. Drop by large spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.
  7. Bake about 10 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack.

This recipe will prepare just enough cookies for to have a little dessert and some to take to work/class to share the next day, without making you feel like you’re swimming in cookies. (I took them to Emilee’s house tonight — hence the photo above!) The ingredients are all common enough, as long as you have a bag of chocolate chips squirrelled away in a cabinet. You even only have to dirty up two measuring utensils if you want (the 1/2 cup and 1/2 teaspoon)!


Shamelessly reblogging my DIY blog as usual. ;)
