Everyone wants to know the best chocolate chip cookie recipe! It's very rare that you hear a person say they don't enjoy a delicious chocolate chip cookie every now and then. Chocolate chip cookies are a classic dessert that nobody can pass up!

Not only are chocolate chip cookies a delight to munch on, they are also so much fun to make! So, if you are looking to get your hands on the best chocolate chip cookie recipe out there, you don't have to look any further!

Making cookies is always so much fun to do! When we make cookies in my house there is always a joyous feeling that can't be beat. We laugh, we play, we make a mess, we bake and then of course, we eat our masterpiece cookies. I love the smile on my daughter's face when she sinks her teeth into the cookies that she helped create with her own two hands.


What you'll need for the world's best chocolate chip cookie recipe:

When it comes to making chocolate chip cookies, you'll always need the same basic ingredients such as the following;

  • 2 sticks of softened butter (1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. of baking powder
  • 2 3/4 cups of all purpose flour (You can also measure the flour so that it weighs 12 oz)
  • 1 tsp. of baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp of salt (sea salt)
  • You can't forget the chocolate chips! 2 1/4 cups for semi-sweet chocolate chips.

If you like walnuts in your cookies you can always add 1 cup of chopped up walnuts, this is really your decision. This recipe will serve about 48 cookies (4 dozen) depending on your sizing of the cookies. Know that you may want to purchase two bags of chocolate chips and use 1 1/2 bags of chocolate chips as this recipe isn't the same as a standard recipe you'll find on the back of your chocolate chip bags.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together your sugar, brown sugar, and butter.
  3. As you are mixing that together, add in the eggs one at time.
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract and mix together until well blended.
  5. Now you will add in the baking soda and baking powder. Again, mix until well blended.
  6. You will now add in the final ingredients! Which is the flour and the salt.

Be sure that your dough is well mixed together. Your dough shouldn't be too thick or too liquidy. You should be thick enough to form the dough into a ball shape. You should make the balls about a spoon full size. You don't want them to be too large because they could all end up connecting together and won't cook correctly.

Many people mess up their cookies when it comes to the timing so it's very important you use timers so you don't over or under bake your cookies. Nobody likes biting into a cookie that feels like it chipped a tooth! Your cookies should bake for about 10-13 minutes. The edges of the cookies will give you the best indication on whether your cookies are ready to be removed or not, they should be a golden brown when it's time to remove them and the middle should be a lighter shade than the edges.

Baking chocolate chip cookies can be a very fun activity when doing it with friends or family. It's something we try to do as often as we can without making to too common and it's always a blast.

Sometimes my daughter likes to try and form the dough into different shapes, this would work best if you have cookie cutters. Just remember that baking can be a lot of fun and not to mention the delicious snacking you can do when it's all said and done!
