The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I love baking and experimenting with baking. I have so many recipes that I have found or created over the years that I love. But I have always struggled with the basic Chocolate Chip Cookie. I have gone back and forth between recipes and have never really been completely satisfied. Some were too flat, others too cakey. Finally I found a recipe that is perfect!!  You will want to make these ASAP. 


  • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) salted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup  sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips (I usually use 3/4 a bag)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • Soften butter in microwave (as shown here)
  • Beat sugars with softened butter until smooth
  • Add vanilla and egg to mixture and mix until smooth
  • In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients
  • Add mixed dry ingredients to wet ingredient mixture. 
  • Stir in Chocolate Chips!
  • Form dough into tablespoon sized balls and place on a un-greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 6-12 minutes (varies with different ovens)
  • Watch for a very slight browning of edges (they wont look done when you take them out of the oven)
  • Cool on a cooling rack
  • Enjoy!
