The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Happy Chocolate Chip Day!!

Did you even know that was a holiday? I didn’t until recently but when I found out I knew I HAD to post this specific recipe just for today.

Let’s begin by making a true statement: I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Am I right? Or am I right?!

Well, being from the family I am we are all about homemade goodies, especially our COOKIES! The thought of a store bought chocolate chip cookie actually makes me want to cringe. I know, it’s kinda pathetic, but I’m just spoiled, k? ;)

My mom is a great baker and has always tried out all sorts of cookie recipes. She was one of those moms that would have cookies fresh from the oven waiting for us when we came home from school. Well, although she has tried a TON of different variations of these cookies, our favorite happens to be from a family friend {thanks, Delora!!} I use her recipe as the base to almost every cookie recipe I do. It’s just good and soft! I know it works, and it’s what I’m comfortable with. Today, I will be sharing that recipe with you. It is definitely the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe ever! :D

      I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE hearing that, Jill!! Like I said, we’ve tried so many recipes but we keep coming back to this one. It’s just way too good!! SO glad you like it. :)

  6. 10

    That is my recipe!
    I use whole wheat for part of the flour, and applesauce for the oil- but these are the best- we make this recipe all the time :) I was going to make it tonight and I did not even know it was just Choc. Chip Day a few days ago! :)

      That’s too funny!! We got the recipe from a family friend years ago and it’s our FAV!! Every once in awhile we (my mom and sisters) will try a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, and then we always ask ourselves why cuz this one can’t be beaten! It’s the BEST!! Maybe one of these days I will try the healthy version. :)

    Those cookies look so good! I pinned them so I can make them next weekend for a memorial day party!

    I just made these cookies Gluten Free and Dairy Free, and they turned into perfect little chocolate chip cookie puff delights. Thanks so much for this recipe!!!

  11. 17

    Made these today, super good! Thank you! I have another recipe I found that is very similar just a little less crispy or no crisp…must have less oil…anyhow it’s really really good too! Email me if you want me to type you the recipe (from a magazine article).

  12. 18

    Hi! I found your blog via Pinterest… Made these cookies tonight and they were great!!

    I tried these today as a dessert for our early thanksgiving and These are amazing!! I substituted milk chocolate for white chocolate though but it was great. Thank you so much for the wonderful post!

  14. 20

    Greetings from London England! Just wanted to let you know that I have had the worst week imaginable, but today I stumbled across your lovely blog and this recipe which blew my mind and made the memories of the last week melt away in chocolatey goodness! Thank you!! xxx

      Hi Lizzie,

      Please let me know what gas mark you used, having trouble figuring out how 350 should be converted. Thank you x

  15. 22

    I made these today with my kids. I used all butter instead of butter and oil and they were a big hit with everyone.

  16. 23

    I just made your chocolate chips cookies and my husband loved them!! Better than any other recipe that I have tried!! They turned out perfect!!

  17. 24

    Chocolate chip cookies will always be yummy, but these feel waaaayyy too oily and the cooking time should be longer. It’s still practically dough inside :(

    • 25

      So sorry you had a problem. Did you use the right amount of flour? I’ve never had them come out oily. I would also trying baking a minute or two longer if you thought they were dough-y. :/

  18. 26

    Wow! Can’t believe there aren’t more comments on these! These are by far my favorite cookies that I’ve ever made!!! Possibly my facorite that I’ve ever had. They’re just PERFECT!!! Honestly I wouldn’t change a single thing. Sooo soft. This sounds weird but they taste like baked cookie dough,obviously that’s what all cookies are but normally the dough is better than the cookies, not in this case! We love how you can actually taste all the ingredients. I don’t understand what makes these cookies so great, since the ingredients are so basic, but I don’t think I’ll ever try a different recipe again, everything will now have to try to love up to this! Officially obsessed.

    • 27

      SO glad you love this cookie recipe as much as we do. It seriously our favorite ever!! I use it as the cookie base for every Cookie-related recipe I do!! :D

  19. 28

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! It really is the best cookie recipe I’ve ever tried :)
    Everyone loved it and my super health-conscious friend even asked for more!! Will bake again using different toppings!
    I also used butter instead of oil.

  20. 30

    Why 1/2 c oil and 1/2 c butter and not 1 whole cup butter? Have you found you really like the half oil/half butter better? What is the difference?

  21. 31

    Would there be a different in the amount if using applesauce in place of oil as suggested earlier? I just made these tonight, and the cookies just ran across the pan, didn’t fluff up at all. Not sure what I did :(

    • 32

      Hi Tristen. Unfortunately, I’ve never tried using applesauce before. :( I haven’t had anyone have this problem, but if you figure out the right conversion rate let me know so I can add it to the post for others to use. Sorry about that!

  22. 33

    I clicked on this already having a chocolate chip recipe in mind that I thought was the best and ironically its the same one! :) the cookies come out with a much better texture with this recipe and I seriously recommend it above any other recipe because it turns out great everytime (if made correctly lol)

  23. 34

    What kind of oil????????

  24. 37

    this is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe! its soo goad. would it be okay if i made a big thick cookie?

  25. 38

    I’ve made these several times now and they’re awesome. Thanks for the recipe! I use coconut oil (melted) for the oil, and it gives them a great hint of coconut. SO good. And the dough is to die for.

  26. 39

    I discovered this recipe last fall and have probably made it a dozen times since. They have always come out perfectly for me. I don’t know if I will ever make another chocolate chip cookie recipe. I’m wondering if you’ve ever made these into a chocolate cookie? If I could add a chocolate version of this to my cookie arsenal, I would never look for another recipe again. A chocolate version would be amazing with white chips or mint chips, chopped Andes mints, etc. Any thoughts, or have you tried it?

  27. 40

    These didn’t turn out as I expected! I used raw brown sugar and caster sugar for sugar. They’re very crispy and hard, not soft n chewy :(

  28. 41

    I have been cooking it almost 20 minutes but It is still dough

    Alyssa Stelzig :

    This is my go-to cookie recipe! At 14 years old, I am known as the best baker in the family thanks to amazing recipes like this! I made these for a bake sale, and one man said “You’re going to make your husband very happy if you can bake like this!” These are just overall amazing cookies! I have never had any better!

    • 43

      You are so sweet, Alyssa! I’m so glad you like them. They are definitely my favorite too! And that man is right… you’ll have one happy hubby if you learn how to bake well! :D

  30. 44

    None of the recipes call for sifted flour. Does that mean that it is a given that you do anyway… ? Or that you don’t? Or that you lightly scoop it ? ….. or what do you think?

  31. 46

    This cookie recipe is AMAZING!!!! I use coconut oil in the solid for instead of regular oil. And I have cut the sugar way down. And the BEST milk chocolate chips I think are from Guittard!!! AMAZING!!!! My go to chocolate chip cookie recipe now!!!! Thank you. :)

    • 47

      Ooooh… will have to give coconut oil a try next time. So glad they were amazing and a new favorite. We make them all the time! Thanks for stopping by!! XO

  32. 48

    These cookies are perfect. Just perfect. So incredibly soft, and absolutely delectable!
    So easy and quick to make, too – great for “I really want to make some something delicious, but also want to be able to sit down for a couple minutes while the baby naps.”

    This recipe does make about 6 dozen cookies, so those who don’t want so many of these sinfully good things sitting around might want to halve it.

    • 49

      Using my medium cookie scoop I get a little over 3 dozen, so if you do them smaller you can definitely get close to 6 dozen. SO glad you liked them. They are definitely my GO TO cookie recipe and we’ve been using it for years. :)

  33. 50

    Excellent blog right here! Also your web ssite rather a lot up very

    These are seriously the best chocolate chip cookies ive ever had!! Thank you so much for sharing..

    Quick question: Would it be possible to freeze the dough (already scooped into portions) so you could make just 2-3 cookies whenever you crave them? Because I can see myself sitting there eating the whole batch right away :)

  36. 56

    Hi I was wondering about the temp. It says 350, but as I’m from the UK I don’t know whether that is Celsius or Fahrenheit and what type of oven you are using. I have a fan assisted oven so do you know what the Celsius temp would be to bake these at?

  37. 57

    What kind of flour did you use? :) was it all-purpose-flour?

  38. 59

    I’ve told you before — these are the BEST chocolate chip cookies. I’m going to make them tomorrow and try something different – stuff them with a Dove chocolate!! I’ll let you know how it turns out!! I may have to bake a tad bit longer since they’ll be bigger. Thanks for all you do!!

  39. 60

    I must have done something wrong the dough is very dry and after 7.5 min cookies are still raw. Recipe doesn’t say but I’m assuming I was supposed to add a bag of chocolate chips


thnx
