The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Ever

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Ever
The chocolate chip cookie was invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield who owned the Toll House Inn located in Massachusetts. The 1938 edition of the cookbook was the first to include the recipe “Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie” which rapidly became a favorite cookie in American and still is. There have been countless variations of the chocolate chip cookie, but the recipe below is The Best chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever had. I have tried dozens of chocolate chip recipes with all sorts of variations but this is the hands down winner!
Preheat your oven to 350.
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-3 cups chocolate chips


Cream butter and sugar in large mixing bowl then beat in eggs and vanilla (I use a stand mixer).

Combine all the dry ingredients then add to the sugar/butter and beat in.

Stir in as many chocolate chips as you can fit. I use an ice cream scoop to place them on a cookie sheet which makes them all the same size. Bake for about 13 minutes (depending on your oven – may be more like 15). You want them to just turn golden when they are removed since they will continue to brown a little when you take them out. ENJOY!

I also have a batch of these in my freezer. I use my ice cream scoop and plop some right into a tupperware container that goes in the freezer.  I will often thaw and bake 4 or 6 at a time if I need a quick chocolate fix or I’m having a friend for tea. Let them thaw for 20 minutes, then pop them in the oven for a fresh baked cookie in no time.
