Chocolate Chip Cookie Mini-Pies . . well, sort of. .

My sister’s family was recently in town visiting and we were packing food for a picnic on the beach.  I wanted to make something a little more heartier than a cookie (so I could pack less) and I also wanted to use my whoopie pie pan (for the 3rd time). These are definitely bigger and you only need to eat one. .  or two. .  so if you have a whoopie pie pan or want to get one, these are fantastic! Next time, I’m going to press a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in the middle, maybe half way through baking and see what happens.


Chocolate Chip Cookie Mini-Pies

I just used a chocolate chip cookie recipe and put the dough into the pan to bake.


  • 2 cups minus 2 tablespoons cake flour
  • 1 2/3 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 1/2 sticks (1 1/4 cups) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet and 1 cup milk chocolate chip morsels
  • Sea salt to sprinkle on top (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Set aside.

2. Using a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Reduce speed to low, add dry ingredients and mix until just combined, for about 5 -10 seconds. Mix in chocolate morsels.

3. Scoop mounds of dough (about 1.5-2 tablespoons worth) into each cavity in the pan. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and bake until golden brown but still soft,  about 15-17 minutes (depending on how much you scoop out; just check the cookies).
