Description

A chewy chocolate chip cookie that has just a slight crispy exterior with a soft, chewy interior.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated, white sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional) – I usually don’t do it, but some prefer it
  • 1 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Using a hand or stand mixer, cream together your butter and sugars until they are light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract, mixing to combine.
  4. Gently add in the flour, baking soda, and salt (if using). Mix until it is completely combined and mixed through.
  5. Set mixer aside and fold in the chocolate chips by hand so they do not break.
  6. Using a 2 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop your dough onto a silpat lined baking sheet. Leave plenty of space between the cookies to allow them to spread.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 8-10 minutes. You want to pull them out just when the edges begin to set. Do not over bake them.
  8. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for 1-2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  9. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Use softened butter. Do not use melted or cold butter.
  • Don’t over bake them. Take them out when the edges just barely start to set up.
