Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

True story:  I made 36 of these one afternoon, and put 12 aside for a friend who’d just had a baby.  Between myself, Chris and the two girlfriends I had over in the evening, we consumed 22 of these before the end of the day.  22!  Needless to say, you may have just found your go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe!

UPDATE:  Friend with baby said her cookies didn’t last the day either!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

It’s not a complicated recipe and uses all the typical ingredients you would expect to find in a chocolate chip cookie.

Let’s take a nice close look at these 🙂

Classic Chocolate Chip Recipe

Nonstick vegetable oil spray
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup (packed) brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups milk-chocolate chips

1.    Preheat oven to 325 F.  Spray large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray.  Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl to blend.  Using electric mixer (or a fork and some elbow grease), beat butter in large bowl until light and fluffy.
2.    Add sugar and brown sugar; beat until well blended.  Add eggs and vanilla; beat until mixture is creamy and well blended.  Gradually add flour mixture, beating just until incorporated.  Stir in chocolate chips.
3.    Working in batches, drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 -3 inches apart.
4.    Bake cookies until pale brown, about 15 minutes.  Cool 5 minutes on sheet.  Transfer cookies to racks and cool completely.

  1. Let’s be honest, another trueism of cookie baking is that between 5%-15% of the dough never sees the baking sheet! (Double that if you’re not having a good day. Quadruple if you’ve had a bad week. And scratch the whole thing if you’re a woman and you’ve had a bad break up and a girlfriend is over consoling you because you’ll both just eat it straight out of the bowl.)

  2. Haha, definitely! The dough is amazing and I consumed probably closer to the 15% mark…..A friend of mine made chocolate chip cookie dough, and then baked it into cupcakes!!!! They were rich and amazing, and I’m definitely going to try that recipe out at some point. Just another delicious way to ingest cookie dough!
