Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 9 minutes
Total Time 19 minutes


  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 13 tablespoons of butter melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup of granulated white sugar
  • 3/4 cup of firmly packed golden brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of milk chocolate chips plus more chocolate chips for topping cookies


  1. Start by melting butter and setting butter aside to cool completely.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment, combine melted and cooled butter, both sugars, vanilla and salt. Beat on medium speed until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add egg and egg yolk, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary.
  6. Add in flour mixture and continue mixing until incorporated.
  7. Add in chocolate chips and give a final stir.
  8. Dough will be soft, but should be firm enough to shape into balls.
  9. Place cookie dough on baking sheet and top with additional milk chocolate chips.
  10. Bake about 9 minutes, just until edges are a light golden brown.
  11. Don't over bake as cookie will continue baking as it cools.

Recipe Notes

Make sure butter has cooled completely before using. Warm butter will make cookie dough overly soft. If cookie dough is very soft, let stand for about 10 minutes and it will be easier to handle.
