2 cups semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Dough

 

Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Mix Dry Ingredients: In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Set aside.

Cream the Butter and Sugars: In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars.

Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, approximately 2 minutes.

Reduce the speed to low and add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute.

Combine Dry and Wet Ingredients: Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Step 2: Bake the Cookies

 

Shape the Dough: Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart.

Bake: Bake until the cookies are golden around the edges but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and let cool on the baking sheets 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.

Tips for Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure that the butter and eggs are at room temperature to help create a smooth dough.

Don’t Overmix: Overmixing the dough can lead to tough cookies. Mix just until the ingredients are combined.

Chill the Dough: For a thicker cookie, you can chill the dough for about 30 minutes before baking.

Evenly Sized Cookies: Use a cookie scoop to ensure all your cookies are the same size and bake evenly.

Conclusion

These classic chocolate chip cookies are a timeless dessert that never fails to satisfy a sweet tooth.

With their crisp edges and chewy centers, they are the perfect balance of textures.

Whether enjoyed with a glass of milk or on their own, these cookies are sure to become a favorite in your home.
