Best Ever Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

If you love thick chewy chocolate chip cookies, this recipe will be your new favorite. It's a variation on the recipe found on the back of the chocolate chip bag, but with a few enhancements that were recommended by my friend Janet. I'll never go back to the regular bag recipe again! These are the cookies I include in every college care package I send to my kids.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 stick unsalted butter softened*
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
1 bag of semi sweet chocolate chips or morsels

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  1. Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl, set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix softened butter, eggs and vanilla until creamy.
  3. Pour butter mixture into dry ingredients bowl and mix well.
  4. Fold chocolate chips into batter.
  5. Use a medium scoop to drop dough onto baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 9-11 minutes until edges turn golden.
  7. Remove from over and cool on wire racks.

Makes about 3 dozen.

*If you don't have time to let it sit on the counter to soften, microwave for 20-30 for a softer butter, but don't melt it completely as that changes the consistency of the cookies.

Enjoy every bite!


  1. Lol! My husband has been on a quest to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. So far we haven't found a recipe that satisfies everyone's idea of perfect. I will have to add your recipe to his queue! (thanks!)

  2. I haven't used the bag recipe for a long time. I'll have to compare your recipe to mine. A cookie sounds good, just about now.

  3. Could you tell me how much butter is a stick? Is it a 1/2 cup?

    1. Yes it Yvonne! I'm sorry I couldn't email you but you are a 'no reply'. I hope you see this.
