Use Quality Ingredients

For the best cookie taste and structure, use fresh, high-quality ingredients. You should get fresh eggs, good butter, and real vanilla extract instead of fake vanilla extract.

Measure Very Carefully

Flour is often the main dry thing that goes into these cookies. If you add too much flour, your baked goods will be dry. Use the scoop-and-level method to measure.

Bring Cold Ingredients to Room Temp

Before you mix things, let things like butter and eggs cool down. They will mix better, making the batter smoother and the cookies softer. You don’t have to make them warm; just cool enough to handle is good.

Do not mix too much

Mix the batter just until the dry ingredients are mixed in and the wet ingredients are no longer visible. Cookies can get tough if you mix them too much.

Chill the Dough

Before baking, putting the cookie dough in the fridge for the time given (or even overnight) lets the flavors blend and the fats harden. The cookies will taste and feel better as a result. Plus, they won’t spread out too much while they’re baking.

Look for Golden Edges

The edges of the cookies should turn golden brown, but the middle should stay a little soft, unless the recipe says otherwise. This mix keeps the texture soft without baking it too long.

Cool Before Transferring

Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack to cool all the way. This helps them set and keeps them from becoming too weak and breaking.

Remember that the only way to get better at baking is to keep learning and trying new things. Have fun and enjoy the process of making tasty baked goods!

At room temperature, these will last for two to three weeks in a container that keeps air out.

They can also be frozen for up to six months in a container that keeps air out. Instead of putting them in the microwave to warm them up, let them come to room temperature on their own when you take them out of the freezer.

Have fun with the best easy chocolate chip cookie recipe ever! This guide will show you how to make treats that are the perfect mix of chewy, crunchy, and chocolatey.

Prep Time 10 minutes

Mix the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together in a medium-sized bowl. Put away.

Put melted butter, white sugar, and brown sugar in a big bowl. Mix it with a whisk for two to three minutes, or until it turns into a paste.

Mix in the egg and vanilla with a whisk.

Add the dry ingredients and gently fold in the flour with a rubber spatula. Be careful not to mix the ingredients too much.

When there are still a few flour spots, add the chocolate chips and mix them in until they are well mixed.

Put the dough in the fridge for an hour, or longer if you can.

Warm the oven up to 350F. Put parchment paper on a baking sheet and set it aside.

Spread the cookie dough out evenly on the baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Set them apart about 2 inches. They’re done when they’re golden brown and have a golden ring around the bottom.

Once they are cool, move them to a cooling rack and bake the rest of the cookies.

Notes

For bigger cookies, bake at for 9 to 11 minutes (2 oz scoop). If you use a smaller scoop, bake them for 8 to 10 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and the bottom sides have a golden ring around them.
