Small Batch White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these white chocolate chip cookies way back in August on the first day of school.

This is a small batch and makes just 16 cookies. Therefore, you won’t have dozens of cookies around to tempt you. I don’t know about you, but I’m super tempted with sweets, especially soft, gooey cookies.

I’ve shared a couple of other small-batch cookie recipes with you in the past. Have you had a chance to make them? I can’t even choose my favorite, that would be like choosing a favorite child, so I don’t know which one as my top pick to recommend. I do, however, recommend trying them both and deciding for yourself 🙂

I find white chocolate to be sweeter than a dark or milk chocolate which makes these cookies on the sweeter side.

When you’re planning to make these allow time for the dough to chill before baking. You can chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. That will allow the butter to firm back up, and the cookies will be thick and chewy versus thin and crispy.

Also, because there are fewer quantities in these small-batch cookies, it’s more important to measure each ingredient accurately. For the correct way to measure flour, read this post.

When measuring flour for this recipe, since there it's a small batch it's very important to measure correctly. Don't use the scoop-and-fill method, please read this post on correctly measuring flour. I used a 1 tablespoon spring-release scoop to measure cookies exactly. I was able to get 16 cookies.
