  • Electric Beater
  • Oven


  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F or 175°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, mixing until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake until cookies are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes; transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.



    • If you want a more intense chocolate flavor, use dark chocolate chips.
    • For crispier cookies, use granulated sugar and bake them until they're just set.
    • You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate chips in this recipe.
    • Chilling the dough helps to prevent the cookies from spreading too much and becoming flat.
    • The goal with chocolate chip cookies is to achieve a balance of chewy and crispy. To get chewy cookies, use soft brown sugar and make sure not to overbake them.
