The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

I have been trying to create and perfect a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I could claim as The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies for a while now and I finally feel like this is the one.  This is it.  If you follow me over on Instagram than you were a part of this process and you know how exciting this is!  I can’t wait for you to try these cookies!  If you make them, be sure to slide into my DM’s and let me know.

  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (or semi sweet for less sweetness)
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg (room temp)
  • 1 egg yolk (room temp)
  • sea salt (to taste)

Instructions

1

In a large bowl melt the butter.

2

Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar to the bowl with the melted butter and hand whisk together until blended evenly.

3

Whisk in the vanilla and almond extract, egg, and egg yolk until the mixture is creamy and light.

4

Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until ingredients are combined.

5

Gently stir in the chocolate chips.

6

Place the cookie dough in the freezer for 30 to 60 minutes. (don’t skip this step!)

7

Scoop out cookie dough using 1/4 cup of dough per cookie and roll the dough into balls in your hands until smooth.

8

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

9

Place the cookie dough balls 2-3 inches apart on a lined baking sheet.

10

Bake for 11-14 minutes depending on your desired texture.  11 minutes for chewy, 14 minutes for crunchy edges.

11

When you pull them out of the oven sprinkle them with a dash of sea salt.  Then allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.  Then enjoy! 

QUICK TIP! Don’t bust out your KitchenAid Mixer for this one! Do this by hand 🙂
