Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe - Made from Scratch!

Truly the great all-American standby of desserts! This chocolate chip cookie recipe yields a dough that can be made in bulk, portioned out, and kept frozen in a Tupperware container or plastic baggie until needed. Which means you could bake just one or two cookies at a time (based on experience, however, we recommend upping your batch size!).
