The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies
These perfect chocolate chip cookies are golden brown on the outside and chewy on the inside. The perfect combination!
- 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
- 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 bag semisweet chocolate chips 12 oz
Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
Combine both sugars in a bowl and whisk to eliminate any lumps.
Add the melted butter and whisk to combine until fully incorporated.
Whisk in one egg at a time ensuring each one is combined.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine with a rubber spatula, scraping down the sides to incorporate all ingredients fully.
Fold in the chocolate chips to the batter.
Scoop dough out onto parchment lined baking sheet (about 4 tablespoons each or use a cookie dough scoop). Chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
Once dough is chilled, heat oven to 375. Place dough 3 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
TIP: if you would like to add some sea salt flakes to the cookies, do this after chilling, but before baking.
