Print Recipe



  • cups all-purpose flour 150 grams
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda 3 grams
  • ½ cup unsalted butter 113 grams (1 stick)
  • cup granulated sugar 67 grams
  • cup brown sugar 71 grams
  • 1 large egg 50 grams
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 grams
  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips 128 grams


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
    1¼ cups all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars together until they are light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla, and continue mixing until they are blended. Add in the flour mixture and beat until the dough is soft and creamy.
    ½ cup unsalted butter, ⅓ cup granulated sugar, ⅓ cup brown sugar, 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Fold in the chocolate chips until they are evenly mixed into the dough.
    ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Using a cookie portion scoop or spoon, drop scoops of the dough onto the preapred baking sheet. Leave about 1 inch between the cookies to allow for spread while baking. Bake for about 9-11 minutes, until the edges of the cookies begin to turn golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and place on cooling racks to cool.



  • This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies. 
  • Want to make these cookies more colorful? Swap the chocolate chips for M&M's! This dough will work just fine with the classic candy.
  • Avoid using softened butter, unless you want the cookies to spread and be flatter. However, if that's the texture you prefer, then opt for room temperature butter.
  • For a richer flavor, use dark chocolate chips instead of semisweet. You can also add just a pinch of espresso powder to the dough to deepen the flavor even more!
Storage: Store chocolate chip cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
