Secrets to the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

There’s nothing quite like the aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies wafting through your kitchen. In this recipe, we’re sharing the secrets to creating the most delectable, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies you’ve ever tasted.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the salt, vanilla extract, and eggs until the mixture is creamy and well blended.
  3. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown, but the centers are still soft.
  5. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
