  • 1 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a mini muffin pan.

  • Fill mini muffin pan cups half full. Bake until edges are golden but center is still soft, about 11-12 minutes. Let cool in the pan about 5 minutes, then push rolos in each of the cups upside down, then carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.  (Don't overbake unless you want crispy.)
