  • cups unsalted butter room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  •  Place the softened butter and sugars in your mixing bowl. Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, or a hand mixer, cream the ingredients at low speed. Cream the ingredients until the mixture is creamy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and blend at low speed until combined. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour to the butter mixture and mix until combined. 
  • Finally, stir in the chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough. 
  • Use a small cookie scoop (No. 40) to drop 1.5 tablespoon-sized dough balls onto parchment lined baking sheets. Place the cookie dough balls 2 inches apart (no more than 8 cookies per tray). Bake the cookies in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. 
  • Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Store your chocolate chip cookies covered in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
  • Freeze baked cookies or unbaked cookie dough balls for up to 3 months.
  • Make ahead: To make cookies in advance, prepare the cookie dough balls and freeze them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Once completely frozen, pack the cookie dough balls into an airtight container or freezer bar to freeze up to 3 months. Once you are ready to bake, remove the frozen cookie dough from the freezer and bake at 375ºF. Add 2-3 minutes to your baking time.
