The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World!

Posted on

Okay, I don’t use that term lightly either. These really are some darn good chocolate chip cookies. The secret, I’ve discovered, is using more brown sugar than white sugar. It gives them that golden color, and the crisp outside and chewy outside.

Seriously? So good.

Oh, but if you use a rimmed cookie sheet, and you try to yank the parchment paper off in one smooth motion…

It doesn’t work.

And then you have to eat some of them, because they’re all messed up.

But seriously? SO GOOD! You must make these now!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. NOTE–You can do smaller cookies (I just use a cookie scoop) and cook them for 8-10 minutes.

  2. I must resign myself to enjoying the pictures of these obviously incredible cookies on your food blog, Brandy. I’m still eating healthy. But if I weren’t, I’d be on my way to the store for the ingredients. Seriously. Those are some luciously fat babies. The side view is astounding; they almost look like the size of a two-story office building. That top left picture, I see the moisture just oozing out, begging me to take a bite. Nice post. Vicarious pleasure is pretty good (but not quite as good as the real thing). And it will have to do for now.

  3. I’m making these right now!
