Small Batch Spicy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, cream the butter until light and smooth. Add the sugars and cream together with the butter until fully incorporated. Add the egg and beat rapidly until smooth. Mix in the vanilla extract, then add the flour, baking soda, and crushed red pepper flakes. (You are supposed to sift the flour and baking soda together before adding them into the mixture, but I don’t.) Lastly, add the milk chocolate morsels.
These are drop cookies, so you are going to do just that: drop them in little, funny, somewhat constructed, 3/4 tablespoon balls. The dough should be a little sticky, so they definitely will not resemble anything smooth and perfect.
