Chocolate chip cookies make everything better, but sometimes you don't want to store a whole cookie sheet of golden brown cookies in an airtight container for days. If you're feeling guilty about eating too much sugar, you can go small. Here are 10 recipes for small batch chocolate chip cookies that won't leave you with any leftover dough. Grab some granulated sugar, parchment paper, light brown sugar, white sugar, sea salt, baking powder or a teaspoon baking soda, a teaspoon vanilla extract, some egg whites, and some butter. You'll need most of these ingredients and a small bowl or medium bowl to prepare these best chocolate chip cookie recipes. A wire rack can help you keep those cookies crispy, and a silicone baking mat will keep them from sticking to your cookie sheet. Preheat those ovens and prepare for the perfect amount of cookies, because these will beat any brownie recipe you've got on hand.
