Chocolate chip cookies are a household favorite, a timeless classic, an unparalleled snack, warm, cold, dunked in milk, in dough form, or in baked form. No one can resist the comfort of a chocolate chip cookie and everyone has their favorite recipe whether it’s on the back of the yellow Toll House bag or scribbled in your grandmother’s recipe book. Here is mine.

Servings 5 dozen


  • 4.5 cups flour
  • cups white sugar
  • cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 cups butter
  • 4 eggs, large
  • 2 tsps baking soda
  • 2 tsps salt
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 4 cups ISH milk chocolate chips

Baking isn’t like cooking. It is science. You cannot just wing it. You have to treat it with respect. Cooking is like hanging with your pals, but baking is like tea with your Grams. Be responsible and follow the rules. If you make substitutions to this recipes, I have no idea what kinda fresh hell might happen so proceed with caution.


    • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    • Then, mix all your wet ingredients together (I use a Kitchenaid Mixer)
    • Cream together your butter, eggs, sugars, and vanilla extract until creamy.
    • Gradually add your dry ingredients in (flour, baking soda, salt)
    • Chocolate chips go last. No science here. Measure that shit with your heart.
    • IMPORTANT: This is the most important direction. You gotta chill the dough – minimum 4 hours, but overnight is ideal. Why? Because it guarantees the perfectly cooked cookie edges and ooey gooey insides. If you don’t chill the dough, it just cooks all the way through and while satisfactory, they will not be the world’s best cookies.
    • Tale that chilled dough and drop by rounded tablespoon (or just roll it into balls like I do) onto your cookie sheet – a silpat ensures even baking.
    • Bake for 10-12 minutes. I find the first batch needs 12 minutes because the pan is cool, and the rest need 10-ish minutes.
    • When the edges are brown and the insides look gooey still, take ’em out
    • Transfer to cooling rack.
    • BOOM DONE.
