Chocolate Chip Dough Balls

Tracy Byrne

Dough balls are quite possibly the easiest thing I have baked!  I do not exaggerate when I say the hardest part about making dough balls is not giggling like a sixth grader when you say the name.  And sixth graders do giggle whenever you say the word "balls," trust me I know, I teach them.  I even make the point when I am about to says balls to get extra serious and pull the whole "I-don't-know-why-you're-laughing,-we're-scientists,-let's-act-like scientists" routine.  I love it!

Seriously though, make some dough balls!  Irene first introduced me to them as a MUST TRY!  They taste like cookie dough, but they are baked, so it's not controversial. Besides the doughy interior, I love the saltiness of the dough balls.  Think of these as an updated cookie for adults.

Chocolate Chip Dough Balls Adapted from My Life as a Mrs. Yield - 40-44 dough balls

2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 cup sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 4 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 bag (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line to baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add in the eggs and the vanilla.
  3. Sift together the dry ingredients and add slowly to the butter mixture.  Do not over mix.
  4. Add in the chocolate chips and stir by hand.
  5. Using a 1 1/2-2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop balls of doughs onto the parchment paper.  You can place these rather close because they do not spread.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes or until their tops are no longer doughy.  Do NOT over bake, these are meant to be soft inside.
  7. Cool on a cooling rack.
