Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

Category: Chocolate, Cookies, Kids

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour (see notes below)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature (see notes below)
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli semi-sweet)


Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray..
In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt together.
In another large bowl, using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat together the butter, and sugars about 2 minutes and is smooth.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix on low speed until mixed in.
Gradually add the flour mixture and mix in until just incorporated. Do not keep mixing - do not overmix.
Add chocolate chips and stir with a wooden spoon, again no overmixing, just until incorporated.
Chill dough if dough is warm.
Using a small or large ice cream scoop or heaping tablespoon, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, 6 to 8 per pan, depending on size you are making.
Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned and the tops feel firm when lightly touched,
Small cookies bake 8-10 minutes
Large cookies bake 10-13 minutes.
Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes 15 - 30 cookies depending on size.
