Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

24 servings


22 minutes

total time


1 1/2 cups (191 grams) all-purpose flour

1 1/4 cups (159 grams) bread flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

2 sticks (227 grams) unsalted butter, (at cool room temperature)

1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar

1 1/4 cups (250 grams) lightly packed brown sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk, (at cool room temperature)

2 cups (340 grams) semisweet chocolate chips


If baking right away, preheat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the eggs and yolk, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla. Slowly beat in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Using a large spring-loaded cookie scoop, divide the dough into 3-tablespoon sized balls.

If time permits, wrap dough balls in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hours but no more than 72 hours. This allows the dough to “marinate” and makes the cookies thicker, chewier, and more flavorful.

When ready to bake, place dough balls on prepared baking sheets, at least 2 inches apart.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Although I prefer cookies fresh from the oven, these can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days. See pink tip box above the recipe for storage tips.
