I often double this recipe. Or triple or quadruple.
I often add in extra chocolate chips. (Why not?)
This recipe also makes a great gift as a cookie mix. Layer all dry ingredients in a quart mason jar. Stuff saran wrap at the top to keep ingredients from shifting, then screw on the cover. Attach a gift tag that says:
1/2 cup melted butter
1 beaten egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Shape into 1 " balls.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
