TINY chocolate chip cookies

I’ve always loved miniatures so when I was asked in the comments to do miniature baking I couldn’t resist. I set to work building a dollhouse sized kitchen complete with running water and a working oven. It some time to modify the metal oven to make it function. My first attempts resulted in the candle going out as soon as the oven door was shut. Many experiments and air holes later and amazingly it worked. This was such a fun project, let me know if you’d like to see more things baked in my mini kitchen.

To make this chocolate chip cookie recipe real sized you will need:
290g (10.23 ounces) or 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
125g (4.41 ounces) or 1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
240g (8.47 ounces) or 1 1/2 cups plain all-purpose flour
200g (7.05 ounces) chocolate chips

Mix together the butter and sugar then add in the egg and stir well. Add in the sifted flour, baking powder and chocolate chips. Roll tablespoons of mixture into a ball. Gently press to flatten each cookie and bake for about 15 minutes (or a lot less if they are miniature of course).

    I came across your site first when I found the miniature bakery. This video is even more astonishing. I shared it on fb with the following comment:
    This is really, really cute and exactly to my taste: Real baking in a self-made miniature kitchen with real water, a hot oven and light in the fridge. Ann Readon does not only have great recipes for baking and easy to follow tutorials, she is also the best baker in the tiniest kitchen ever!
    And I love her motto: “I don´t do things half way!”

    • Thanks Corinna, for the great feedback. Thanks for following and sharing.

      THAT EGG! I am a miniaturist and love doing tiny things (or at least I did when I still could see properly) but that egg is messing with my mind! Need any mini woodturnings? I have done a goblet and wine bottle set from wood that would fit perfectly. 😉 Not for sale, but I’ve done it once so can do again.

      • Thannks Kiti for the feedback. Glad to hear that there are others who love miniatures too.

  14. Please am new here and i love your works but how did u build the fridge and oven.Also the counter tops.where can i get tiny spoons,tiny cups,tiny cutter, whisks and so on

    • Hi Abiola, Ann has collected some of these gorgeous items over many years. You could try specialty toy stores or online stores that specialize in dolls house furniture and items.

    Hellooo Ann, I think this was so, so sweet & a very challenging Video?. Thank you for all that hard work you put in. You just made my Child dream to come true. As a Kid I always wished I could turn my tinny oven on & back for real.?

    • Thanks for commenting Fary.

  20. Where or how did you get that tiny egg?

    • A comment from the youtube video that explains it perfectly, ‘With the egg, I want to guess you used a small amount of the white, and for the yolk, you mixed in sodium lactate with a normal yolk and dropped a tiny amount it into a calcium chloride solution to form a skin just like a real egg yolk? That is the only way I can think of doing it.’

      • OR maybe it’s a finch egg?

        • whats a finch

      • Finch would be too big, I think I agree with Flick’s idea.

      • lol i love how she hasn’t responded to anything about the eggs but thats 99% of the comments
