The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Author: Tara Deal Rochford
  • Total Time: 0 hours
  • Yield: 2 dozen medium-large sized cookies (or more if you use a tablespoon) 1x


This classic chocolate chip cookie recipe really is the best! My family has been making this recipe for years and it gets rave reviews every single time.



1 1/2 cups butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2 eggs, room temperature

1 Tablespoon vanilla (I always put a little extra!)

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 375.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar until creamy.  Then, add eggs one at a time and vanilla until thoroughly combined.

In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt , and baking soda.  Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, constantly scraping down the sides of the bowl to make sure that everything gets mixed in.

Once the batter in completely mixed, add in the chocolate chips.  Scoop the dough into little balls on an ungreased cookie sheet (you can determine the size).

Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and allow to cool on a piece of wax paper.


I prefer to use a tablespoon size scoop when making these cookies.
