Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Thursday! I realized that I've never posted my recipe for chocolate chip cookies before, and since I baked them on Tuesday night, I decided to share the recipe with you all today. There's nothing super special about them, but whenever I bake them I get lots of compliments and people can never eat just one! This time I used bittersweet chips because I was out of semi-sweet which most people prefer, but they were still just as delicious. They're perfectly soft in the middle and a little bit crispy on the outsides. Let me know if you decide to try them out! :)

Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes about 3 dozen cookies
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and get out two ungreased baking sheets.
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter on high speed for 2-3 minutes or until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add both of the sugars and beat until the mixture no longer feels gritty between your fingers.
  5. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  6. Reduce speed to medium-low and add the dry ingredients slowly, scraping down the sides of the bowl until just combined.
  7. Reduce speed to stir and add the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  8. Roll the dough into 1.5 inch balls and space apart on the baking sheets.
  9. Bake for about 12 minutes so that the centers are soft but the edge are a bit crispy.
  10. Allow to cool on cooling racks before storing in an airtight container.
  11. Enjoy!!
