Since school is now in full effect, I’m packing lunches… twice, daily. I always like to put a little something extra in my girl’s lunches. Whether it is a love note… or a few cookies, what kid doesn’t love a little surprise in their lunch bag?

Truth be told, I hate packing lunches. Like reeeeeeeeally can’t stand it. One kid likes PB&J the other would survive on granola bars and cheese quesadillas if I’d let her. But one thing they both can agree on is cookies.


Of course you could whip up your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and just make them mini, orrrrr maybe you have a French aunt name Nestle Tooolhouse who passed her recipe on down to you? #friendsreference If you have a fave, use it! But I like this recipe for it yields soft and chewy cookies… and if you eat an entire bowl, who cares? They’re bite-size!

butter, sugar, mix collage

In a bowl beat the stick of butter until soft and pale yellow. Add in both sugars and mix on medium speed until combined.

eggs, vanilla, mix collage

Crack in the egg, add in a teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix, mix, mix.

dry, chocolate chips, mix collage

Add in the cup and a quarter of unbleached all-purpose flour and mix until just combine. Throw in a cup of chocolate chips… I like milk chocolate, but semi sweet or dark would be just as scrumptious. Mix with a rubber spatula just until the chocolate chips are throughout.

spoon out a rounded teaspoon

Measure a round teaspoon of cookie batter and drop them onto a lined sheet pan.

roll and press

Roll the cookie dough into balls and gently press them so they are a little flatter.
