How do you make easy chocolate chip cookie dough?

This cookie recipe is simple to make. There’s no need to use a mixer – hand or stand. In fact, I suggest mixing them up by hand. Also, since the butter is melted, the butter doesn’t have to soften beforehand. And there’s no need to chill the dough before baking. All of which makes this a simple, easy chocolate chip cookie recipe.

 How do you bake cookies in a muffin tin?

It’s easy! I use a baking spray with flour to grease the cups of the muffin tin. Then, you just place a scoop of cookie dough into easy cup and bake.

How do I get the cookies out of the muffin tin?

Wait about 5-10 minutes for the cookies to cool a bit. Then, use a thin rubber spatula to gently pop the cookie out of the tin. As long as the pan was greased well, it should just slide right out. Or you can use muffin tin liners to line the pan.

Tools used to make these Muffin Tin Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Parchment Baking Liners: This is my favorite brand of baking liner. They are nonstick, and everything just peels right off. I like that I never end up with half a muffin or cupcake stuck to the paper when I use them.

Baking spray with flour: I use baking spray with flour most of the time when I’m baking. I like that it greases and flours all in one spray, and I’ve never had trouble with anything sticking when I use it.
