Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favorite dessert, and this easy recipe is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever! Make homemade chewy cookies from scratch that are slightly crispy on the edge, soft and chewy in the middle.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 2 to 3 dozen
- 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup pure cane sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour measure before sifting
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 heaping teaspoon salt
- 1 12- ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pre-heat your oven to 375°F.
Cream together (or mix together) the unsalted butter, brown sugar, and pure cane sugar. Again, I highly recommend light brown sugar.
Add the eggs and vanilla extract to your creamed mixture, mixing well.
In a separate mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together.
Mix the sifted dry ingredients into the creamed mixture.
Add the chocolate chips, thoroughly mixing the chocolate chips into the dough.
At this point, nuts are an optional add-in. We’ve used walnuts, but pecans would be delicious too.
Chill the cookie dough for about 2 hours or more.
Using a cookie scoop, drop cookies onto your cookie sheet.
Bake at 375° for 10-11 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden and done.
When you remove each batch from the oven, remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and allow them to cool on a wire rack.
Serve with a nice tall glass of ice cold milk.
