I have the best chocolate chip cookie recipe (granted, I may be biased) ever! I don’t even remember where I found it originally, but I’ve been making this recipe for years. This recipe has been tweaked to my liking, and I think the “secret ingredient” really makes it stand out.

Best ever chocolate chip cookie recipe

This recipe is super simple, and will come together relatively quickly. There aren’t any weird ingredients, and I tend to keep all the ingredients on hand in case I need to show up somewhere bearing “gifts”. 

I now have a Kitchen aid mixer thanks to my wonderful guy, but this will work just fine with a hand mixer as well. These are seriously my favorite chocolate chip cookies. I’ve tried a bunch of recipes, but always come back to this one. 

The Process 

The ingredients are pretty easy to keep on hand.

Fairly simple…

These cookies mix up pretty quickly:

All mixed, just need the chips

 

If you’re using a scoop, you get nice even domes of dough on the baking sheet:

So easy with a scoop

Because these cookies don’t really spread, they usually look the same when they’re done as when they went on the sheet.

Done!

Ingredients 

  • 3/4 cup salted butter (softened) 
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • 2 cups all purpose flour 
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°
  2. Place the 1.5 sticks of butter in a bowl. Microwave for 15-20 seconds on 50% power. This makes the butter soft but not liquid. 
  3. Grab your stand mixer (again, a hand mixer works just fine also), and cream the butter and sugars until fluffy and light. 
  4. Add the egg and the vanilla, mix. 
  5. Add the baking soda and cornstarch.
  6. Mix the flour into the dough in 1/2 cup increments. I find this method gets the best consistency with the dough, and doesn’t make a huge mess. 
  7. Stir in chocolate chunks until incorporated. 
  8. Using a cookie scoop, drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet (I use parchment paper on a Wilton brand cookie sheet). 
  9. Bake 8-10 minutes, until just golden brown on the edges. I check after 8 minutes, but sometimes have to go 9 or 10, depending on the oven. *Note: the tops of these cookies will not brown, so you have to check the edges. 
  10. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 5 minutes. 
Final thoughts

I have always gotten about 3 dozen cookies with this recipe using a standard scoop. They puff up but don’t spread, and they’re just the right amount of chewy.

I'm a 30-something geek/nerd just trying to make it in life. My current obsessions are the Queer Eye reboot, Doctor Who, Outlander, and American Gods to name a few. I also love hearts, stars, elephants, sushi, makeup, and self care. I’m a big believer in human rights and I’m a pitbull advocate as well. I love to read, and you will often find me in a nook with a good book, or watching a Disney movie (preferably from the late 80s/early 90s). When the local renaissance faire rolls around, you can find me there visiting my guy and our friends. I live with my boyfriend of 6 years, our cat Pippin (a 10 year old pure-bred Blue Point Ragdoll) and our rescued pitbull mix (American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer) Celia Mae. I entered the realm of direct sales with Jamberry, and was a consultant for almost 2 years before finding Java Momma and Younique. I firmly believe in supporting other DS sisters. My favorites are Paisley Raye, LipSense, Younique, Origami Owl, and Perfectly Posh. Life is crazy, hectic, sometimes overwhelming, but so rewarding!!
