Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter melted and cooled (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 heaping cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and/or chunks


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl with a whisk or spatula, combine butter with white sugar and brown sugar until smooth.

Add egg and vanilla. Mix until just incorporated, about 10 to 15 seconds (do not overmix).

Gradually add flour mixture until crumbles form. If the dough seems too wet, add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough comes together. With a spoon, carefully mix in chocolate chips.

With a medium sized cookie scoop or damp hands, shape the dough into 12 large balls and place on prepared baking sheets 2 inches apart.

Bake until the cookies are puffy but just barely golden, about 9 to 11 minutes. Do not overbake.

Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
