Melted butter, more brown sugar than white sugar, cornstarch, and an extra egg yolk guarantee the absolute chewiest chocolate chip cookie texture. And you don’t even need a mixer! Reader Adrienne commented: “These are the best cookies I’ve ever had. Incredible. Don’t cut corners or you’ll miss out. Do everything she says and you’re in for the best cookies of your life.”
There are thousands of chocolate chip cookies recipes out there. Everyone has their favorite and this one is mine. Just a glance at the hundreds of reviews in the comments section tells me that this recipe is a favorite for many others too! In fact, if you asked me which recipe to keep in your apron pocket, my answer would be this one. (In addition to a classic cut-out sugar cookies and flaky pie crust, of course!) Just read the comments on a post in our Facebook group. These cookies are loved… and, warning: they disappear FAST.
The recipe is also included in two of my published cookbooks (in Sally’s Baking Addiction, I swap chocolate chips for M&Ms/chocolate chips combo).
3 stick real butter
1 c sugar
1 c packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
walnut pieces (optional)
How to make it :
Heat oven 375..In large bowl mix butter and both sugars till they are creamy..Add eggs and vanilla and beat till light and fluffy.
Mix flour ,salt and baking soda. Then gradually add flour mixture. Then add chips and nuts. I use a small cookie scoop. Cook 8- 10 minutes. (Until lightly browned)
