How to Make Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are few things in this world that taste better than a fresh, homemade chocolate chip cookie. The gooey inside and crispy outside of a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie are enough to make any mouth water. They go great as a late-night snack, a sweet treat during a movie, or pretty much any time at all. By following this simple recipe below, you will be able to make the perfect chocolate chip cookies right from the comfort of your own home.


  • 2 ½ sticks unsalted butter

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • ¾ tsp salt

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

  • 2 ½ cups flour


  • Preheat oven to 375° F.

  • Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Mix together the butter and sugars until they’re light and fluffy, and then slowly add in the vanilla extract and eggs.

  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt, and then pour the contents of that bowl into the bowl with the butter and sugar and mix together.

  • Fold in the chocolate chips.

  • Roll the dough into one-inch balls and place them on the baking sheet two inches apart. Let them bake for 10-12 minutes, or until they’re lightly browned.

  • Let them cool for 10 minutes and then enjoy.
