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

Step-By-Step

1Preheat the oven to 350F with two racks evenly spaced in the middle of the oven. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2In a large mixing bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. Add the brown sugar and stir to mix thoroughly.

3Add the egg and the vanilla, stirring after each addition.

4Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda and, in about 4 portions, add to the other ingredients, stirring after each addition.

5When 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.

6Portion 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.

7Bake for 9-12 minutes, trading shelves and turning the baking sheets around half-way through to allow even baking.

8Allow 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.
