This no-mixer cookie recipe is easy to throw together and results in 20 very chewy cookies. We are a small family lacking in will power so small-batch cookies are the way to go! Small batches also mean you can make a variety of different chocolate chip cookies through the holiday with only 1 bag of chips.

This recipe uses melted butter and dark brown sugar to result in a very thick, very moist cookie.

Note to self: Bill and I both really, really, REALLY like this cookie made with pecans.

Ingredients

1 stick
unsalted butter (1/4 lb.)
3/4 c
dark brown sugar
1 large
egg
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
baking soda
3/4 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c
chopped pecans, walnuts or similar nut meat

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 350F with two racks evenly spaced in the middle of the oven. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2
In a large mixing bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. Add the brown sugar and stir to mix thoroughly.
3
Add the egg and the vanilla, stirring after each addition.
4
Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda and, in about 4 portions, add to the other ingredients, stirring after each addition.
5
When the previous ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add the chips and nuts. Stir to distribute evenly through the dough. The easiest way to do this is with your hands.
6
Portion dough into 20 equal balls, about 1/8th cup each and distribute on the lined baking sheets. Press each ball lightly to flatten to about 1/2 inch thick.
7
Bake for 9-12 minutes, trading shelves and turning the baking sheets around half-way through to allow even baking.
8
Allow the cookies to cool thoroughly on the baking sheets, about 30 minutes. Since these are very moist cookies, leave in open air at least 1 hour before wrapping or placing in closed container.
