Creation: Bite size Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I gathered all of the ingredients to make chocolate chip cookies today, I didn’t realize they would be bite-sized.  I have three different sized cookie scoops because I am not a fan of having cookie dough on my hands for the obvious reasons……less messy and more sanitary.  I would say 98 percent of the time, I grab the medium size scoop for most cookies.  I couldn’t get my hands on it before I grabbed a new one that I recently purchased.

I baked my cookies and when I removed them from the oven, I noticed how small they were immediately.  The funny thing is when I put them in the oven, I didn’t pay any attention to them, figuring they would expand during baking anyway.

But noticing the smaller size, I starting thinking “Did I miss an ingredient?  Did I forget to add the baking soda?  Did I measure incorrectly?  You know, the questions a new baker might wonder.  I’ve been doing this cookie-baking thing for way too long to make that kind of mistake, if that was what I did.   But I reviewed it all in my mind and everything was there and measured correctly.  Why are these cookies so small?

I compared the two scoops and found the “problem”.      The new scoop was smaller!!

GASP!

(Side note: Don’t worry, I realize in the big picture of the world, this is hardly a real problem.  Sometimes we all need a laugh break from the real world, don’t we?)

So I ended up with bite-sized chocolate chip cookies.  Less calories, less guilt, still tasty!
