Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

These are my FAVORITE chocolate chip cookies! Dough balls were all the rage in the blog world a few months ago, but this was the only recipe I tried. Why mess with perfection, right?!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
from The Chic Life

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 stick butter, softened/room-temp
1 tbsp sugar
1 egg (or flaxseed-egg)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix sugars and butter till creamy. Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  4. Mix wet into the dry. The dough will appear dry and crumbly, but that’s ok.  
  5. Gently fold chocolate chips into the dough, without overmixing.
  6. Refrigerate dough for at least 20 minutes before using a small ice cream scoop to scoop out dough into small mounds. Roll each mound into a ball and spread evenly on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake balls for 10-14 minutes, depending on how set you want your centers. If you use egg, you can use a meat thermometer to ensure the centers of the balls are at least 160 degrees F, which many web sites say is the safe temp to eat eggs.
  8. Let your dough balls rest on the baking sheet to cool at least 5-10 minutes.
  9. Try not to eat all of them!!!
