The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ever

Chocolate chip cookies

I’d say this is an instant crowd pleaser (because it is), but with everything going on right now, even the thought of the word “crowd” makes me shudder. It’s going to be a while get reacclimatized to the idea that concerts, packed house parties and Costco on a Saturday morning is actually a very normal, would-think-about-it-twice thing.

So I’ll keep this short and sweet (pun intended): You’ll never go wrong with a solid batch of chocolate chip cookies, and this is a recipe my mother swears by. Make them for your family, bake batch to win over the hearts of even your most unforgiving foes, or enjoy them on a solo date with Netflix…. because… #Quarantine.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 9 minutes

Yields 5 dozen cookies.


  • 2 1/4 cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon  salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup  granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup  packed brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2  large eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat your oven to 375^F

In your mixer, blend your sugar(s), butter, vanilla & eggs on high for 2 minutes. Grab a separate bowl and mix together flour, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips and walnuts.

With the mixer on the low setting, mix your dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, carefully adding one spoon in at a time until everything is mixed evenly.

Grab a ice cream scooper, and drop 2 inch rounds onto ungreased baking sheets. Cook one sheet at a time. If you cook two sheets at a time, switch the top & bottom trays halfway through to ensure that everything is cooked evenly.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; then carefully use a spatulla to move the cookies to wire racks to cool completely. 

Store them at room temperature in an airtight sealed container, or freeze them to preserve them long term. You’ll never want to use another cookie recipe again after this one!
