There’s nothing better than a soft & fresh chocolate chip cookie! I have the perfect recipe for such a delectable treat that everyone will enjoy!
WHAT INGREDIENTS WILL YOU NEED?
- Dark brown sugar
- Granulated sugar
- Salted butter – real butter!
- Vanilla extract
- Baking soda
- Semi-sweet chocolate chips
Using brown sugar in your cookies will help them to have a more moist texture and be much more chewy. By substituating some of the granulated sugar in a cookie recipe with brown sugar, you’ll have a more soft cookie, however the sweetness level will stay the same!
Is the cookie dough freezer friendly?
Absolutely! Just roll the dough into individual balls and pop into your freezer in a freezer safe bag or container. When you’re ready to bake them remove from the freezer and allow to thaw by placing them on parchment paper.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the sugars and beat on medium speed to combine, about 1 minute.
- Add the butter and beat another 4-5 minutes on medium speed, scraping down the side of the bowl as needed. This will form a very grainy paste - that's ok!
- Add the eggs and vanilla then beat on medium speed for about 1 minute. Do not let the sugar granules dissolve, so don't overmix.
- Next add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat on low speed for about 1 minute, only until ingredients are incorporated. Don't overmix.
- Fold in the chocolate chips just until they are mixed throughout the dough.
- Using a medium cookie scoop, form dough into balls and place on prepared cookie sheets. Bake 13-15 minutes just until edges and tops have set. They may seem a bit undercooked and soft, however they will firm up as they cool.
