It’s just as tantalizing as homemade baked donuts or banana bread. Whether you’re making Christmas cookies or surprising your kiddos with a sweet after school treat, memories are made with America’s most loved chocolate chip cookies.

Everyone needs a go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe and this one is a keeper. The cookies stay soft for days. Just read the amazing reviews then try them for yourself. P.S. Just to clarify, we now use 1 tsp baking soda because we loved the results even more.

Tips for Making Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • Measure ingredients correctly, especially the dry ingredients (fluff your flour with a spoon then spoon flour into the cup and scrape off the top for an accurate measure).
  • Sift baking soda to eliminate any lumps
  • Butter and eggs should be at room temperature
  • Use plenty of chocolate chips – they add moisture and give the cookies good form
  • Use a trigger release scoop for equal-sized cookies (3 Tbsp each)
  • For a prettier cookie, stud the top of each cookie dough ball with a few extra chocolate chips before baking.

Ingredients:

This chocolate chip cookie dough has simple ingredients with pantry staples you probably already have and the cookies can be baked right away (no chilling required). You can also refrigerate or freeze until ready to bake and they bake up perfectly every time.

Which is the Best Chocolate for Cookies?

Semi-sweet chocolate chips (46% – 60% cocoa content) – Chocolate chip cookies are classically made with standard sized semi-sweet chocolate chips, but mini chocolate chips or chocolate “chunks” will also work. Nestle, Tollhouse, Ghirardelli, Guittard, Kirkland, Hershey’s,… most any brand will work. If you have the option, look for a package that states the cocoa content.

Milk chocolate chips (10% cocoa)- If you like a very sweet cookie, milk chocolate chips are a good option, just be prepared with your glass of milk! You can also mix milk chocolate with semi-sweet.

Bittersweet chocolate chips (70% cocoa) – produce a more ‘adult’ cookie – intensely chocolatey and less sweet.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies:

This is the easiest cookie recipe and comes together quickly. Start with some quick prep: preheat oven to 350 °F and Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpat mats. We usually bake 1/3 of the cookies at a time and refrigerate or freeze the rest to make a fresh batch another day.

  1. In a large mixing bowl with a paddle attachment, cream together butter, white sugar and brown sugar on medium/high speed 5 minutes.
  2. Beat in eggs one at a time then mix in vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, thoroughly whisk together flour, baking soda and salt then beat it in thirds into the batter. Fold chocolate chips into the cookie dough.
  4. Scoop even balls of dough (3 Tbsp each) and arrange on prepared baking sheets. Bake one cookie sheet at a time.

The Secret to Soft Cookies:

Over-baking is the #1 cause of hard cookies. So, when are chocolate chip cookies done? The cookies should be removed from the oven when they are just turning golden at the base and the dough still looks a little raw on top. They won’t look done coming out of the oven and you’ll be tempted to keep them in there longer, but please do not over-bake.

Removing them at the right time is the secret to soft chocolate chip cookies. Our sweet spot for baking is 12 minutes (whether baking right away or after refrigerating the cookie balls)

Why do Chocolate Chip Cookies go Flat?

This is usually due to having the wrong balance of ingredients (not enough flour) causing them to spread out too much. Also, check your leavening and make sure your baking soda is not expired and still active. To test baking soda, place 1 tsp baking soda into a cup and add a splash of vinegar – it should fizz and if it doesn’t, replace your baking soda.

Why did my Cookies not Flatten?

If your cookies ended up too thick and did not flatten, the usual culprit is too much flour. Be sure to measure by fluffing the flour first with a spoon then spoon it into a dry ingredient measuring cup and scrape off the top. If you push your measuring cup into a flour bin, you will get up to 25% too much flour. Also, do not tap the flour down in the measuring cup.

Also, form cookies with 3 Tbsp of dough. If you make them too large, they will take longer to spread.

How to Freeze Cookie Dough:

This cookie dough is freezer friendly and we love freezing half for another day.

To freeze cookie dough: place cookie dough balls onto a baking sheet or cutting board, cover and freeze for an hour or until solid. Once they are frozen, you can transfer them to a large ziploc bag and freeze up to 3 months.

To bake frozen cookie dough: transfer to a Silpat or parchment-lined baking sheet and thaw the frozen cookies in the refrigerator for 3 hours over overnight before baking per the recipe instructions.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚ F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or Silpat liner. In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment, combine 2 sticks of butter, 1 cup of packed brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar. Beat 5 minutes on medium/high speed until creamy and light, scraping donw the bowl as needed.

  2. Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating well with each addition, scraping down the bowl as needed, then beat in 2 tsp of vanilla.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine 3 cups of flour, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tsp of baking soda (sifted to eliminate lumps). Add the flour mixture to the creamed butter in thirds, mixing to incorporate with each addition. Fold in 2 cups of chocolate chips.

  4. Use an ice cream scoop to get even balls of dough (3 Tbsp each). Place scoops of dough onto lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Mine fit onto 3 cookie sheets and made 26 cookies. Roll balls lightly with your hands then stud tops of cookie balls with reserved chocolate chips. Bake right away or cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.

  5. Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 12-15 min at 350˚F (we bake 12 minutes), until edges are just turning golden. The tops should still look under-baked. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet 5 min then transfer to a rack to cool. 

Recipe Notes

*To measure flour correctly, fluff the flour with a spoon then spoon it into a dry ingredient measuring cup and level the top. Do not dip a measuring cup directly into the flour bin or you can compact it and get up to 25% more flour and your cookies won't spread correctly.

Could this recipe be altered to include almond flour, and should it be part almond/part All Purpose?

    I guestimated the measurements, and baked all in one go which meant I crowded the baking tray, so the result wasn’t as good as it could have been but was still the BEST my wife and son ever tasted :))))
    I reduced the chocolate and added raisins which also worked well. Used all organic products.

      Hi Lee, I’m so glad you enjoyed the flavor! I recommend checking the tips in this part of the recipe: Why did my Cookies not Flatten? If your cookies ended up too thick and did not flatten, the usual culprit is too much flour. Be sure to measure by fluffing the flour first with a spoon, then spoon it into a dry ingredient measuring cup and scrape it off the top. If you push your measuring cup into a flour bin, you will get up to 25% too much flour. Also, do not tap the flour down in the measuring cup.

      Also, form cookies with 3 Tbsp of dough. If you make them too large, they will take longer to spread.

      Hi Jan, great question. If you scroll to the bottom of the recipe post, you can change the serving size to your desired amount. We tried this with baking powder in our testing but had better results with baking soda. Keep in mind baking soda is 4 times stronger than baking powder so you will need more baking powder.

    In your video you say to add baking powder and yet your recipe shows baking soda with no baking powder? The video does not coincide with the recipe.

      We first published this chocolate chip cookie recipe in 2012. We are always working on perfecting our recipes so we modified the recipe with a tad more salt and switched to 1 tsp baking soda. This resulted in a softer, chewier cookie that spread perfectly with or without chilling the dough.

    Made these cookies and her chicken lasagna… Every bite is gone! I’m making my own secret batch of cookies to eat by myself once every one is asleep. They are everything you could want in a chocolate chip cookie. Great flavor, awesome texture and irresistible! I added pecans and carmel chunks to make a turtle chocolate chip cookie and it is winner! From foodie to foodie this recipe was spot on!

    Dear Natasha,

    If I could, I would give this recipe 10 stars and still won’t be enough!! I do them over and over again and my husband doesn’t seem to get enough of them! 🙂 They are so delicious. Super yummy! Something which I have tried and worked perfectly is switching off the oven after approx 5 minutes of baking and leave them to slow cook. Obviously I left them in the oven for a longer period of time from that recommended by you and I have to say that the result was very satisfying! The cookies remain really soft!

      Hi Nish, they were definitely overbaked if they are crunchy the next day. I suggest removing them from the oven when you see them turning golden at the edges of the base. they will seem very soft on top until they cool completely and then they firm up.

    Am NOT writing to challenge your recipe, you are a much better cook than I will ever be, but was fascinated by your recipe as it was with minor exceptions is the same as the one I have been making for 60+ years which was given to me by my mother. I suspect she got it off of a package of chocolate chips or from the Joy of Cooking some time in the 1940s. The recipe I use calls for only 2 cups of flour, a bit less vanilla and says each cookie should be about 1 and a half tablespoons and not rolled but dropped directly on baking sheet. My depression era mother was always a bit short of the chocolate chips and only used 1 cup which I have increased to almost 2. I did try your recipe and must admit they are good but not sure about the extra cup of flour but suspect after all these years this may be more a matter of familiarity. As for the chocolate chips, I prefer dark chocolate these days but by grandchildren prefer a mix of white and dark chocolate and one also like walnut bits added in. Thanks for the recipes. Will now see if I can make a pumpkin cheesecake that will come out looking as good as yours.

    I just made this cookie recipe tonight. They came out AMAZING! Chocolate chip cookies are my boyfriend’s favorite and he loved these cookies. Very easy to make and the dough is delicious (I had a few nibbles). Only bad thing is my oven is horrible so it took longer than the 10-12 min to bake. I had to babysit my cookies a few more minutes until ready to come out. Adding the extra chocolate chips on the cookie balls is on point and made them extra gooey chocolatey. Yum!

      Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate, which requires an acid and a liquid to become activated and help baked goods rise. Conversely, baking powder includes sodium bicarbonate, as well as an acid. It only needs a liquid to become activated. We first published this chocolate chip cookie recipe in 2012.

Also loved the fact that I could bake these straight away and not have to waste time freezing.. they came out gorgeous, soft, chewy and delicoius! Only had dark brown sugar on hand so I subbed the quantities with the granulated sugar so that they don’t darken too much. I also halved the recipe to make about 18 cookies and baked for 15 min.

      Hi, adding too much flour would change the consistency of the cookies. I think you could make the whisk attachments work on low speed, you would just want to take it out and use a wooden spoon when adding the chocolate chips. The paddle attachment is better because the mixture is so thick.

      If your cookies ended up too thick and did not flatten, the usual culprit is too much flour. Be sure to measure by fluffing the flour first with a spoon then spoon it into a dry ingredient measuring cup and scrape off the top. If you push your measuring cup into a flour bin, you will get up to 25% too much flour. Also, do not tap the flour down in the measuring cup.

      Also, form cookies with 3 Tbsp of dough. If you make them too large, they will take longer to spread.

      Charlene , I think it depends on what brand of flour you use.

Next time I will start with 1.5 cups of Canadian flour and add as needed. Hope that helps!

    These cookies are delicious but they came out a little cakey for my liking. I like my cookies to flatten out more as they bake and these ones didn’t. I’m an avid baker, and chocolate chip cookies are always hard for me to get perfect. I fluff, spoon, and scrape my flour for accurate measuring so I’m not sure what I did wrong. I will try this recipe again with my scale for more precise measuring next time and then leave an updated review. Any advice or tips is appreciated!

    Besides the slightly off texture/ consistency, I love the flavor and they are still a really good cookie

    Hi Natasha!
    I was wondering if you could help me. The first time we baked these the batter was way too runny but tasted nice. The second time I added a tad bit more flour and sugar, but it was oddly tasteless. Where did I go wrong?

    BTW I love your recipes and wondering if you can do a double chocolate cookie.

    Hi! Love your recipes! I have a question on this cookies. I first tried the original recipe which was really good. Then I tried the new version and they are awesome! But I noticed that the mix with the new recipe came out a little more “watery” and sticky than the original, and it was a little harder to make round balls. Have you noticed this or maybe I did something wrong? Still came out very good in flavor but a little softer so they bended and broke easily. Maybe I can bake 1-2 min more.

      Hi Grace, The great thing about making a big batch of cookies is that you can freeze half of the cookie balls and bake them another day so you only have to bake one cookie sheet. I’ve done this before and it’s awesome to have cookies when my son requests them without having to go through any kind of process. We store ours in an airtight container for a few days. I have not tried freezing them after they are baked but I imagine that may work!

      Hi Grace, my oven has heating elements from the top and bottom that work at the same time. I would recommend baking on regular bake mode and avoid using broil or convection settings. You can freeze the baked cookies or freeze unbaked cookie dough. You can also refrigerate them. See the tips towards the bottom of the post on how to freeze cookie dough.

    Cookie is outstanding but Natasia made a mistake in the printed version of recipe. It should be only 1/2 tsp.salt not 1 tsp. When I watched the video she said 1/2 tsp. Please make correction I wasted a whole batch of cookies because they were too salty.

    So I have been making the recipe on the back of the Nestle bag forever; since I was in high school. But I adore EVERYTHING I make by Natasha so I thought I’d give this a go. Let me tell you; i served the first patch to 5 teenage boys who literally said and I quote “how did you do this? Soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside?” These cookies are incredible. For it to work, you must sift/mix the dry ingredients. The butter and eggs also at room temp is important. AND you do really need the 2 cups of chips. Finally, I love how pretty hers are w/ the extra chips she does on top but I am way too lazy for that. Plus my teenage boy taste testers don’t care. Make these; you’ll love them!

        I add a tablespoon of corn starch to the recipe and it does make them chewy but I think monitoring the baking time closely is still the way to chewy cookies. The corn starch tends to keep then chewier in storage(that NEVER happens in my house!)

      I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe, Rose! Measuring dry ingredients can be tricky. This post on measuring is our go-to.

    Hi Natashia, your recipes are awesome and I love watching your videos! I am visiting my son and I do not have my KitchenAid mixer here– can I use a hand mixer to make these chocolate chip cookies?

      Hi Angela, You could definitely use a hand mixer instead. If the batter gets too thick for your hand mixer, just use a spatula to mix the rest of the way.

    I like to weigh out my flour, could you update the recipe to show this. 12 3/4 oz or 360 gm. I get better results.

      Hi, if you click “Metric” in the recipe card, you will see the measurements displayed in grams.

          Hi Catherine, I”m not sure about the naming in the UK but baking soda is 4 times stronger than baking powder and very different in the US.

            What about all purpose flour? I’m not sure which one I go for plain or self rising flour. I have look google it’s say plain flour and I’m very interested your blog

            Hi Catherine, all-purpose flour is plain flour, not self-rising.

    Love your recipes.
    The written recipe indicates baking soda and the video indicates baking powder. I read the update that you now use baking soda but you do not mention if this is in addition to or instead of the baking powder.

        Can I use baking powder instead of baking soda and if so is the amount the same?

          Hi Stacey, We tried this with baking powder in our testing but had better results with baking soda. Keep in mind baking soda is 4 times stronger than baking powder so you would need more baking powder.

    Hi Natasha, is it possible to use almond flour instead of all purpose?

      Hi Leah, I haven’t tested that to advise but here is what one of our readers wrote “I used almond flour instead of multipurpose flour and all white sugar because my brown sugar was too old to use. They are soooooo yummy!!! Natasha’s recipes are soooo good! I love the video instructions too!!!” I hope that helps.

    Hello Natasha,

    Just need to clarify. In your video you say “1 tsp baking powder”. The recipe calls for “1 tsp baking soda”. Which is correct? Thank you.

      Hi Sally. We first published this chocolate chip cookie recipe in 2012. We are always working on perfecting our recipes so we modified the recipe with a tad more salt and switched to 1 tsp baking soda. This resulted in a softer, chewier cookie that spread perfectly with or without chilling the dough

    OMG these are THE BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever baked. I can’t tell you how many recipes I’ve tried using butter only for the cookies to come out flat and sad looking. These were perfectly puffy and soft and the perfect balance of sweet and salty with walnuts. This will be my only recipe I will use going forward. Now excuse me while I indulge I. Yet ANOTHER cookie. (giggle, giggle)

        These cookies had a great chewy texture but they were way too sweet. Is there any way to reduce the sugar without affecting the texture too much? Thanks.

          Hi Bryn, that may work to reduce sugar but the texture does change with less sugar and they can seem a little more cake-like.

    Hi Natasha,

    Thank you for this recipe! I have made it a few times, and my family loves it. One question though, if I wanted to make it into a double chocolate chip cookie by adding cocoa, how much do I need to add? Or would this completely change the outcome of the cookie?

    Thanks!

      Hi Melanie, without testing that through, I could only guess about the amounts. I would probably experiment by swapping out some of the flour for cocoa. I wish I could be more help. If you test this successfully, I would love to hear the details.
