The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Today I am sharing my recipe for the BEST chocolate chip cookies!!

How to make these cookies perfect:

  • For ultimate chewy cookies, do not overbake them! They will cool and harden! Bake them for the correct time listed below, until golden brown.
  • Spoon and level your flour. You don’t want crumbly dough!
  • Leave your butter out for about 2 hours before making these cookies, for room temperature butter. Do not microwave the butter to soften it. You can use melted butter if you want crispier edges.
  • You can refridgerate/freeze the dough you don’t use! Simply set it out a few hours before baking them to thaw.


1 cup of butter, softened to room temperature (If you use salted butter, omit the salt.)

3/4 cup of white sugar

1 cup + 3 tablespoons of brown sugar

2 eggs

3 cups of flour

1 tsp of baking soda

1/2 tsp of baking powder

2 tsp of vanilla extract

1 tsp of salt

1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until nice and fluffy, for about 2-3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until combined.
  4. Add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and fold them together until combined. Then add the rest of the flour and mix until it forms a nice dough. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. You can use two parchment paper lined baking trays, or just one and freeze the rest of the dough. Roll the dough into balls the size of your liking. I do about 2 tablespoons. Place them at least 2 inches apart so they don’t stick together.
  6. Bake in your preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes or until the edges are just starting to turn golden brown.
  7. Let them cool and enjoy!

If you make these, please let me know how they turn out! 🙂
