Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

Chocolate chip cookies from scratch are my favorite dessert. Easy to make, they're slightly crispy around the edge, soft and chewy in the middle.

  • Pre-heat your oven to 375°F.
  • Cream together (or mix together) the unsalted butter, brown sugar, and pure cane 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.
  • Chill the cookie dough for about 2 hours or more (this step is totally optional, per explanation in the post above).
  • 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.



*Measure the flour before sifting.
Nuts are an optional add-in. We've used walnuts, but pecans would be delicious too.
