Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been working on this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe for a few weeks after several readers asked about a full batch recipe for the Perfect Single Serving Size Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I am so thrilled to share this recipe with you, because they are absolutely the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had. They are soft and chocolatey in the center, and crisp and chewy on the edges. Cookie perfection.

My favorite part about this recipe is that it’s adapted from my single serving chocolate chip cookie recipe, which was adapted from my Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup recipe. My microwave cookie is all gown up!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love a simple and easy recipe, so this is both of those. You mix everything in the stand mixer, no extra bowls or big clean up. No strange or secret ingredients, just the good stuff.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

from Melissa at no. 2 pencil

Makes about 2 dozen cookies


12 tablespoons of butter, melted and cooled
3/4 cup of firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of kosher salt
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
2 egg yolks plus 1 whole egg
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine melted cooled butter, sugars, and salt, and mix on medium speed until mixture starts to look smooth. About 1-2 minutes.

2. Lower speed and add vanilla and eggs and continue mixing until well combined.

3. Add baking soda and flour to bowl and mix just until combined.

4. Add chocolate chips and give a final stir with the mixer to incorporate.

5. Measure out two tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Place cookie dough on parchment paper lined baking sheets.

6. Bake cookies for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven when edges start to brown. The center half of the cookie will still be puffy and look undone. Firmly rap cookie sheet on counter top to promote wrinkly appearance. Let cookie cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Cookies will continue to wrinkle as they cool.

  1. Thanks for sharing! My hubby always wants a chocolate chip cookie that’s flatter/crunchier and I can never achieve it! Mine are always too fluffy! Can’t wait to give these a try!

  2. I haven’t tried your single serve chocolate chip cookies, but I’ve made the microwave cup one a few times. I love it! I made it last with Nestle’s dark chocolate mint morsels and it was so so so good. These look amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing these recipes!(:

  3. Crispy on the outside and soft/chewy on the inside is the best way to make chocolate chip cookies!

  4. I made these last night and they are the BEST chocolate chip cookies ever. My usual choc. chip cookies are always too puffy, so I loved the tip about hitting the cookie sheet on the counter. I just shared this recipe with my office! Thanks!!

  5. I made these a couple of weeks ago and they were the best cookies I have ever made-hands down- so I’m making them again today for a family gathering tomorrow. I undercook them a little because everyone likes really soft cookies but they cook so evenly and are so tasty!
