  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and both sugars until creamy.  Add egg and vanilla and stir until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly add dry ingredients to wet. Mix until the dough comes together.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Turn dough out onto a piece of parchment paper and roll out to ¼ inch thickness.
  • Using a 4 inch round cookie cutter and cut out circles. Gently press each circle of cookie onto an upside-down jumbo muffin tin.  The dough will be drier than usual so you’ll have to be very gentle with it.
  • Bake at 375°F for 10 minutes.
  • Allow to cool and gently remove from pan.


TIP: I used a jumbo muffin tin, you could also make small, bite-size cookie cups by using a smaller muffin tin or even a mini muffin pan. 
TIP: You can use a piping bag to help make it easier to fill your cup with your chosen filling. 
TIP: Pop a piece of bread in the container along with the cookie cups if they are getting too hard.
