My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies have been my go-to for almost 10 years. They are fail-proof in my mind! They always turn out thick and chewy. You can make them small for a group or giant and they still turn out great. I love everything about these cookies! They stay soft for days because the butter to flour ratio is so high. My secret for keeping them soft is taking them out of the oven the second you see any brown appear on top. Even the tiniest bit. Then leave them on the tray for at least 10 minutes so they can slightly cook a little more without browning any more. When they come out they won’t be done at all. But in my experience if you wait until they’re all the way done they will be rock hard once they cool! Just take them out early… They will be delicious!

Ingredients, Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • 3/4 c. butter, softened
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 c. flour
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 c. chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars in stand mixer for 2-3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and keep beating for 1 min. Meanwhile in a separate bowl mix flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add dry mixture to wet mixture and cream. Then add the chocolate chips and mix quickly until incorporated.

Bake at 365 degrees for 7-9 minutes, until first sign of brown on top. Then remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack.   Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
