the best chocolate chip cookies

Sure! Here’s a recipe for making the best chocolate chip cookies:


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. You can use a hand mixer or stand mixer for this.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the dough.

  1. Fold in the chocolate chips, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  2. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. You can use an ice cream scoop or your hands to portion the dough.
  3. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. The centers may still appear slightly soft, but they will firm up as they cool.
  4. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Repeat the baking process with the remaining dough, ensuring the baking sheet is cooled between batches.

  1. Once the cookies are completely cooled, store them in an airtight container to maintain their freshness.

Enjoy your delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies!

Note: Feel free to customize the recipe by adding chopped nuts or using different types of chocolate chips for variations.
