My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I’m a big fan of chocolate chip cookies but lately my typical go-to recipe has been ending up with flat and burnt cookies (I think it has something to do with the summer heat). Because of that, the past few months I’ve been trying to find that perfect recipe that consistently makes big cookies chewy, gooey, and bursting with chocolate chips.

After several batches of mediocre cookies I found a recipe I liked and several batches later I was able to adjust it so that it makes the ideal cookie for me. So without further ado…

Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Ingredients
3 cups flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 sticks melted butter cooled to room temperature
1 cup loose brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups dark chocolate chips

Now What?

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside
  3. Beat the melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a bowl at a medium speed until well mixed
  4. Next, add in eggs, egg yolk and vanilla to the butter and sugar mixture at medium speed
  5. Slowly add in the flour mixture at a low speed until the batter is smooth
  6. Add the chocolate chips
  7. Roll into 1-inch sized balls and place on parchment paper 2-inches apart
  8. Bake for 9 minutes on the top rack then switch to the lower rack and bake for another 9 minutes – total cook time in the over should be 18-20 minutes
  9. Remove cookies from the oven and let stand for a few minutes before moving them to the cooling sheet
  10. Serve warm and enjoy!
