Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Do you love chocolate chip cookies, specifically warm, gooey, soft chocolate chip cookies? Well look no further than this recipe. My friend shared this recipe with me when we were having a sleepover, and it’s been my go-to ever since. I always make a batch and bake them, and then put the rest in the freezer or make a second batch and put those in the freezer. And they are still just as yummy!


•2/3 cup butter, softened
•1/2 cup packed brown sugar
•1/2 cup granulated sugar
•1 egg
•1 tsp vanilla
•2 cups semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
•1 3/4 cups purpose flour
•1 tsp baking soda
•3/4 tsp salt
•coarse salt for sprinkling


•Preheat oven to 375.

•In a stand mixer, beat butter for about a minute. •Add sugars and beat another minute or two. •Scrape down sides of mixer with a rubber spatula. Add vanilla and egg. Beat again.

•Add the flour, soda, and salt. Mix JUST until combined. It will look over-floured for a few seconds, but should come together fairly quickly.

•Mix in the chocolate chips.

•Scoop golf-ball size spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet, sprinkle each ball with a pinch of kosher or sea salt and bake for 9-11 minutes. 

They should be light-colored and puffed when they come out of the oven, but dry-looking (not shiny or wet). I often give them a little squish out of the oven on all the sides with a spatula to get that extra crinkly look on top. Then, let cool on the pan for about 3 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.

Enjoy, and don’t forget to tag me if you try them!
