Chocolate chip cookies are a beloved classic in the world of baking. These delightful treats, with their irresistible combination of warm, gooey chocolate and tender, buttery dough, have been enchanting taste buds for generations. In this article, we’ll embark on a journey to create the perfect chocolate chip cookies. This recipe will yield approximately 24 cookies, perfect for sharing with loved ones or savoring on your own.

Historical Context

The history of the chocolate chip cookie is as rich as the cookies themselves. Nestlé Toll House, one of America’s most iconic baking brands, claims to have invented the chocolate chip cookie in the 1930s when Ruth Wakefield, the owner of the Toll House Inn, added broken chocolate pieces to her cookie dough, expecting them to melt and create chocolate cookies. To her surprise, the chocolate held its shape, and the world was introduced to the first chocolate chip cookie.


1. Preheat and Prepare

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line the baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Mix the Dry Ingredients

  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and baking soda. Set this dry mixture aside.

3. Cream the Butter and Sugars

  • In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the room-temperature butter, granulated sugar, light-brown sugar, and salt until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. This should take about 2-3 minutes.

4. Add the Eggs and Vanilla

  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the pure vanilla extract.

5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

  • Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture into the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; this will ensure your cookies stay tender.

6. Add the Chocolate Chips

  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips using a rubber spatula. You can use a combination of semisweet and milk chocolate chips for a more complex flavor.

7. Portion the Dough

  • Using a tablespoon or a cookie scoop, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto your prepared baking sheets. Leave enough space between each cookie to allow for spreading during baking.

8. Bake to Perfection

  • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown but the centers are still soft. Keep a close eye on them, as baking times can vary depending on your oven.

9. Cool and Enjoy

  • Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them sit on the baking sheets for a couple of minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. This step is crucial for achieving that perfect chewy texture.

10. Savor the Perfection
