Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

Growing up I was never a huge dessert person, but when I did want something sweet, chocolate chip cookies were it for me. As I’ve gotten older, I have developed more of a sweet tooth and chocolate chip cookies are still my number one. They are so simple to make yet are just so delicious. I believe I have gotten down the best recipe. These are no chill and are hand mixed.


  • 1 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (I used 1 cup of mini semi-sweet and 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the melted and cooled butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Whisk vigorously for 1-2 minutes until it turns into a paste-like consistency.
  4. Whisk in the egg and vanilla until smooth.
  5. Combine the dry ingredients and use a rubber spatula to fold in. Leaving a few streaks of flour, pour in the chocolate chips. Continue to fold the dough until the chocolate chips are evenly dispersed. Do not over mix.
  6. Scoop cookies onto baking sheet (using a 2 oz scoop will give you 5-6 cookies, use less for smaller cookies). I am not a super exact person, so I like to eyeball them. 🙂
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges start to brown. They will continue to cook outside the oven and flatten.
  8. Top with a few extra chocolate chips and let cool.
  9. Enjoy! I like them still warm with a glass of milk!

Let me know if you try it, or tweak it to better suit you! I guarantee this will be a hit at your next party.
