Bite-sized Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love to get my kids involved when I bake. Making their own snack from scratch and eating them has always been an enjoyable experience for them (but a nightmare for me because of the mess they make and the extra cleaning work they left behind). This bite-sized chocolate chip cookies is one of my kids-friendly recipes. The tiny cookie dough is the perfect size for their little hands to roll (i mean squeeze or play with). By shaping the dough differently and by counting the chocolate chips together, this will be a fun, educational as well as edible math lesson for younger kids like my two-year-old son.

You may notice that I add the chocolate chips when I roll the dough into balls. This is solely because I want each of my cookies to have exactly the same amount of chocolate chips. Feel free to stir in the chips after the addition of flour when you prepare the dough to speed things up.

親子烘焙是EC跟孩子們的最喜愛的活動之一,雖然小鬼們有時會弄得一團糟,增添了EC不少清理功夫,但是他們很享受自己親自下廚的過程。這些迷你朱古力曲奇是EC的其中一個親子食譜,小小的麵糰就好像為他們的小手度身訂造似的,透過將麵糰搓成不同形狀和一起數算朱古力粒等活動又可以跟年幼的小孩子(如EC兩歲半的小兒子)上數學課,絕對是三得:有得玩、有得學、有得食!

你或許會發現EC是將朱古力粒在最後的搓圓過程才加入的,這純粹是因為EC想每一塊曲奇都擁有相同數量的朱古力粒。嫌麻煩的話可將朱古力粒在加麵粉過程末段時倒入一同攪拌。

Ingredients

85 g butter, melted
20 g granulated sugar
50 g brown or dark brown sugar
160 g all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 (about 50-55 g) large egg
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
1/2-3/4 cup (about 100 g) dark chocolate chips

材料

溶牛油 85 克
細砂糖 20 克
黃糖或黑糖 50 克
中筋麵粉 160 克
梳打粉 1/2 茶匙
鹽 1/4 茶匙
大蛋 1隻 (約 50-55 克)
香草醬 1 茶匙
黑朱古力粒 1/2至3/4 杯 (約100 克)

Directions 做法

Sift together flour, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl and set aside.
麵粉、梳打粉及鹽混合過篩放大碗中備用。

Place melted butter and the two sugars in another mixing bowl and beat with an electric or stand mixer until combined. Beat in egg and vanilla bean paste until fully incorporated.
牛油溶液和兩種糖放入另一鋼盆用電動或座枱攪拌器拌勻,加入蛋和香草醬打至完全乳化。

Add flour mixture in two additions (I use the lowest speed on my stand mixer. It can be done by hand with a large spatula as well) and mix until just incorporated.
粉類分兩次拌入混合物中,拌至剛無粉粒便可,EC用座枱攪拌器以最底速拌匀,取膠刮用手輕手拌勻亦可。

Wrap dough with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or overnight.
麵糰用保鮮紙包好,放入雪櫃雪三十分鐘甚至過夜。

Preheat oven to 350ºF/180ºC. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat.
焗爐預熱350ºF/180ºC,烤盤內放牛油紙或矽膠墊。

Remove chilled dough from the refrigerator. Scoop out teaspoonful of dough with a spoon, add in 5 to 6 chocolate chips then roll dough into a ball. Place balls onto cookie sheet and flatten each into a disc.
從雪櫃取出麵糰,用小匙取少量麵糰,加入五至六粒朱古力粒後放在掌心搓成小圓球,排在烤盤上再用手按扁。

Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until slightly browned. Cool on baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
入焗6-8分鐘或至曲奇表面上色後取出,待幾分鐘後可將曲奇移到鐵架上放涼。
