Numerous baking blogs have declared these to be the BEST chocolate chip cookies ever, and I 10000% agree! (: Ever since I found it it’s been my signature chocolate chip cookie recipe:

I’ve tried making these without letting the dough sit in the fridge and the cookies definitely weren’t the same. I’ve let the dough sit overnight though (about 12 hours) and they were still really yummy! Lots of time in the fridge makes all the difference ;)

@Mrs Sarah McK:  I just gotta say…OMG! These cookies are so delicious! Thank you for this recipe. I am always on the lookout for new cookie recipes.  I collect them from everywhere but only the best make it to my cookbook.  These will make it with 5 stars to boot.

@TwilightBlue:  I’m glad I could share! I usually put in a bit more peanut butter and Nutella than called for (and because I’m bad at measuring), and because hello, what’s better than peanut butter and Nutella?!?!

I SWEAR BY THIS CHOCOLATE CHIP RECIPE. I’m not even kidding. They’re always a big hit and are gooey and soft and so delicious.

This is the actual picture I took of the cookies I made:

Ingredients

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 semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

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.

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.

These are my ultimate favorite cookies to eat/make. They’re called cowboy cookies but they include chocolate chips, nuts, oats & shredded coconut.

Oh my goodness please make these chocolate cookies! They are soft with a slight chewiness when cooled. This recipes makes A LOT. Like 4 dozen depending on your size.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups butter, softened              2 cups all purpose flour

2 cups white sugar                          1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs                                          1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla extract              2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

 

1) Preheat oven to 350

2) In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

3) Bake 8 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies will be soft. Cool slightly on cookie sheet; remove from sheet onto wire rack to cool completely.

4) Keep chocoholics away, they may relapse.
