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.
