Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best chocolate chip cookies ever! I can’t wait for you to try them! These cookies are the perfect combination of sweet and buttery, chewy and crispy, and packed with dark and white chocolate.

They’re also huge! If you use the recommended 1/4-cup cookie scoop, each baked cookie will measure over four inches across … that’s a big cookie! If you want smaller cookies, use a 1- or 2-tablespoon scoop to measure out your dough, and then knock off about five minutes from the cook time.

If you’re out of either the dark chocolate or white chocolate chips, feel free to sub in one cup chopped nuts instead. White chocolate macadamia nut would be delicious! As would dark chocolate pecan! Can’t wait to hear what combo you come up with!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

 

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking soda and cornstarch.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, brown and white sugars, and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add eggs and beat again until combined, scraping down the sides as needed.
  3. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add dry ingredients, beating just until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Cover dough with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a ¼ cup cookie scoop, place 6 balls of dough on the baking sheet. Bake for 18 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on the pan for 5 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer cookies to a cookie drying rack and let cool completely.

Makes 18 large cookies.

VARIATION: You can use all dark-chocolate chips, or all white-chocolate chips, or sub in 1 cup chopped nuts for 1 cup of chips.

MAKE-AHEAD TIP: To freeze cookie dough, place balls of dough on a baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Then transfer frozen balls of dough to a ziplock bag for easier storage. When cooking from frozen, thaw balls of dough at room temperature for 20-30 minutes and then bake as directed above.

GIFT IDEA: These cookies make great gifts for teachers or neighbors! We love these cookie bags or boxes for safe transportation and extra special presentation 🙂 The large 4-inch cookies will not fit in the boxes, so plan to make smaller cookies gifting in those.
