Try Out the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Last summer, I was home alone a lot and became very bored, so I would often bake cookies for my friends and family. I baked this recipe so many times and I’ve made a few changes to the original recipe to make it more enjoyable! These cookies are perfectly crisp and chewy, just as cookies should be, so I hope you try them out!

Cookie Recipe


  • 1 cup softened salted butter

  • 1 cup granulated sugar (I like to put a little less)

  • 1 cup brown sugar packed

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 cups flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 2 cups chocolate chips (dark chocolate tastes great, but whatever kind that floats your boat is okay)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375ºF. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, & salt.

  3. In a different bowl, cream the butter with the granulated and brown sugar until it’s combined.

  4. Beat in the eggs until the mixture is a light brown color. At first, it might look a little strange, but it’s okay, keep mixing!

  5. Mix in the dry ingredients until it’s combined.

  6. Add in the chocolate chips & make sure they’re evenly dispersed.

  7. Roll around 2 tbsp. of dough into balls and place them evenly on the baking sheet. I recommend making sure the chocolate chips are mostly covered, especially on the bottom part of the dough so they aren’t as messy when eating. You can also make the balls bigger or smaller based on how big you like your cookies. 

  8. Bake for around 9-11 minutes, take them out when the edges are barely turning brown.

  9. Let them cool & enjoy!


  • While the first sheet of cookies is baking, you can prepare a different cookie sheet with dough so you can quickly switch them in and out of the oven.

  • When the cookies are baking, I recommend putting the bowl of dough in the fridge because if it’s too soft, the cookies can come out of the oven very flat.

  • If you prefer gluten-free cookies, you can substitute the flour for gluten-free flour, using the same measurements.

  • Butter can be substituted for vegan butter or coconut oil using the same measurements.
