Black and White Cookie Bites

At my bridal shower I received a book entitled "Sweet Food" by Kay Scarlett. For almost a year now I have flipped through this book from time to time, drooling over the beautiful pictures and creative recipes, but never actually making anything. I decided it was time to give the book a try and went with a simple, yet fan favorite, recipe of chocolate chip cookies. However I was in the mood for something more interesting than simple chocolate chip cookies so I made my own spin on these. I used a combo of mini chocolate chips and white chips. Then I decided to bake them in my mini muffin tin rather than simply on a cookie sheet. They came out great and I enjoyed my spin on these cookies.

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon of milk
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used a combo of white chocolate and mini semisweets)

Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin.

Cream the butter and sugar together in an electric mixer. Mix in the vanilla and gradually mix in the egg, beating well.

Stir in the milk. Sift the flour and baking powder, folding into the butter mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spoon into the mini muffin tins until the cookie is almost touching the top of the cup. Bake 15 minutes, or until cooked through.

Allow to cool in the pan until firm enough to remove. Remove and complete cooling on a wire cooling rack.
