all-time family favorite

Let’s begin by making a true statement: I have yet to meet someone who does love COOKIES! And more specifically, I have yet to meet someone who hasn’t fallen in love with today’s recipe for our CLASSIC chocolate chip cookies.

We got this recipe decades ago from a family friend, and it’s been loved and adored ever since. Any time I make these cookies, I am asked for the recipe right away. It’s simple – it’s quick – and the result is out of this world.

I use this recipe as the base to almost every cookie recipe I make. It’s just good and soft! I know it works, and I have a feeling you’ll love this recipe because I’ve had hundreds (if not thousands) tell me the same thing. πŸ˜‰

Chocolate chip cookie dough mixed in mixer

making Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

Like all the recipes on this site, these cookies are simple. They take about 10 minutes to make!

Ingredients include: white sugar, brown sugar, butter, oil, eggs, baking soda, baking powder, salt, vanilla, flour and the most important ingredient of all – chocolate chips! Just gather your ingredients and these cookies will made in no time.

Preheat oven to 350. Begin, by creaming butter, oil and sugars. Add eggs and beat until fluffy.

Add the remaining ingredients – baking soda, baking powder, salt, vanilla, flour and chocolate chips. Mix until combined and then scoop onto a greased cookie sheet.

NOTE: The key to making the cookies look pretty is to add a few chocolate chips on top of the scooped or rolled cookie dough. πŸ˜‰

Bake for 7-9 minutes and voila – the best chocolate chip cookies!!

Cookie Factors

We all know everyone likes their cookies a certain way – whether it’s soft, crunchy, large, small, chewy, crunchy, etc. Here are some tips to change up some things to get them just how you like them.

  • FLAVOR – change it up by adding different chocolate chips. We love the white chocolate chip + butterscotch chip combo!!
  • CHEWINESS – Instead of 1 cup sugar + 1 cup brown sugar, try using 1/2 cup sugar + 1 1/2 cups brown sugar. Makes them a bit more chewy!
  • CRISPY-NESS – If you prefer a crispier cookie you’ll need to reduce the moisture content. Try using one of these tips:
    • Bake the cookies for longer at a lower temperature. The cookies will have time to spread out more before they firm up. A thinner cookie will be drier and crispier.
    • Replace the shortening or oil with butter. Butter melts faster causing the cookies to spread more quickly before they firm up. It also contains water which will steam as it bakes causing a drier cookie.
    • Replace the brown sugar with white sugar or corn syrup. Without the moisture contained in brown sugar they will become more dry and crispy.
  • SIZE – Use a mini cookie scoop and bake for less or a larger cookie scoop and bake for longer to change up the size of these delicious cookies.

What makes cookies soft and chewy?

High moisture content makes a soft chewy cookie. If you’re looking for ways to make your favorite recipe a little softer try some of these ideas to retain that moisture:

  1. Bake the cookies for a shorter period of time at a higher temperature.
  2. Replace with a 1-1 ratio the butter with shortening or vegetable oil. This will increase the fat content and cause a softer chewier cookie.
  3. Add 1 Tablespoon of molasses (which is 10% water) or honey to the recipe. Do not add more than 1 TBSP as you do not want to compromise the dough mixture.
  4. Replace with a 1-1 ratio the white sugar with brown sugar. Brown sugar contains molasses.

More Tips + Tricks

If you’ve whipped up a batch of dough but aren’t quite ready to make them all you can STORE the dough in an airtight container in REFRIGERATE for 3-4 days.

Chocolate chip cookies are also FREEZER FRIENDLY. Even if your recipe makes more than you eat at a time still make the entire batch. Roll the extra dough into balls and freeze them in an airtight container. When you want to use them simply pull out the desired amount, let thaw, and bake according to the recipe directions.

If you want your cookies to stay soft longer, try adding a piece of bread in your container or Ziploc bag. It helps absorb the air and will help keep the cookies nice and moist.

Can you tell how much we love this recipe?! It’s the best! We love to change it up, so be sure to check out these other variations of cookies using this recipe as the base. πŸ˜‰

  • M&M COOKIES – add crushed M&Ms in the dough and whole M&Ms on top! Kids go nuts over these.
  • ROLO COOKIES – add chopped Rolos & Toffee Bits to this dough to add crunch and caramel to these cookies.
  • REESE’S PIECES COOKIES – crushed Reese’s Pieces through out with chocolate chips and more Reese’s Pieces on top.
  • COOKIES N CREAM COOKIES – filled with white chocolate chips + Herhsey’s Cookies N Cream pieces through out!
  • MINT M&M and OREO COOKIES – crushed OREOS and mint M&Ms fill this delicious cookie.

    1. So, did you celebrate by eating chocolate chips out of the bag?? I’d by lying if I said I didn’t do that occasionally! πŸ˜‰

  1. Maybe I am just missing it somewhere but where is the original chocolate chip cookie recipe? I only see the 4 links for the variations! THANKS!

    1. I see it now! If I went to your website from google reader it wasn’t there but if I just went to your site it was! Weird!! But glad it is there!!

    1. 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. πŸ™‚

  2. 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 πŸ™‚ I was going to make it tonight and I did not even know it was just Choc. Chip Day a few days ago! πŸ™‚

    1. 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. πŸ™‚

    1. Let me know how they go. I like to see what others think of it. πŸ™‚ And have fun for your memorial day party! πŸ˜€

    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!!!

  4. 5 stars
    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).

  5. 5 stars
    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!

    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

  7. 5 stars
    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!!

  8. 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 πŸ™

    1. 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. :/

  9. 5 stars
    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.

    1. 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!! πŸ˜€

  10. 5 stars
    Thank you for sharing this recipe! It really is the best cookie recipe I’ve ever tried πŸ™‚
    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.

  11. 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 πŸ™

    1. Hi Tristen. Unfortunately, I’ve never tried using applesauce before. πŸ™ 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!

  12. 5 stars
    I clicked on this already having a chocolate chip recipe in mind that I thought was the best and ironically its the same one! πŸ™‚ 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)

  13. 5 stars
    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.

  14. 5 stars
    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?

  15. 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 πŸ™

  16. 5 stars
    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!

    1. 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! πŸ˜€

  17. 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?

        This has been my go to choColate chip recIpe sInce finding it on pinterest 3 Years ago! It’s the best and sO very easY! Thank you!

    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. πŸ™‚

    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.

    1. 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. πŸ™‚

  20. 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 πŸ™‚

        1. 5 stars
          I love these cookies! I actually substitute margarine for the butter and a combo of canola and olive oils … I double the batch and was able to freeze half for baking later. I love the soft chewy goodness! It’s the ONLY recipe I use for Chocolate Chip Cookies ????

  21. 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?

  22. 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!!

      1. 5 stars
        AMAZING!! But you can’t go wrong with this recipe – it’s my ‘go to’ very favorite chocolate chip recipe!! Thank you!! (I made the role batch for our missionaries and they keep raving to me — every week!! — about them!!) Thank you – again!

  23. 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

    1. The milk chocolate chips are part of the remaining ingredients. πŸ˜‰ And the dough should not be dry at all… if at 7.5 minutes they are still raw I would try a few more minutes. πŸ˜‰

  24. I always make this recipe and its amazing. They always come out perfect and delicious. Today I made them and they weren’t coming out quite right, so I made them again paying close attention to ingredients, and they again came out not right. I don’t know what’s happened. They’re usualy perfect. None of my ingredients seem bad, and ive made many things today with the same ingredients.

      1. Yea I did everything the same. Usually they thin out a bit and look like your pictures with a little bit of wrinkling. This time they stayed puffed up, even when pressed down, and they got super crinkly and harder. But I didn’t bake then longer, any less they would have been raw. They had started to burn before fully cooked, and it was at the same temperature too. Usualy they stay soft for days, these crisped up instantly. I made the batter twice too. It makes me wonder if I had a bad batch of eggs or something and it didn’t affect the other recipes

          1. You should check your oven temperature with an oven thermometer. I had a friend whose oven mysteriously broke and ran WAY hotter than the dial stated.

    I made this for my boyfriend and he ate them all in one sitting. Not a day goes by where he doesn’t ask me to make them again!

    I made these and they were very good, but then my daughter made them and used 1 tablespoon of vanilla by accident and we ate them. OMG! Amazing!! Our guests went crazy over them.

    I really like these cookies there sooooo good just made some and they melted in my mouth! Im going to rec emend these to my friends and family!!! πŸ™‚

  28. Looking for a cookie recipe to bake and leave for Santa this Christmas! I just had 1 question, do I need to change anything for being at a higher altitude? I’m 5000 feet above sea level and I usually need to alter my baking recipes a a little bit…

  29. i thought I read somewhere to refrigerate before baking, but I’m not seeing it in the recipe. Do I refrigerate and if so for how long?
    Thanks!

  30. 5 stars
    Literally just took these out of the oven. SO tasty. The only change I made was that I was out of brown sugar so I had to make some with white sugar and molasses (so the dough had a slight molassessy taste, but it cooked out)
    I also had to bake mine for 3-4 minutes longer than your recipe stated. But I love the overall taste of the cookie! Perfectly crispy on the outside and soft and doughy on the inside. PERFECT level of saltiness and sweetness πŸ™‚ Keeper for sure. Thanks so much πŸ˜€

  31. 5 stars
    Dear God, woman, these are the best cookies I’ve ever made! Not only did they come out looking just like your pictures (which, let’s be honest, never happens), but they tasted as good as they look. I made a half batch from the quantities you posted, and they came out perfect. Soft, chewy, gooey, heavenly! A++ to you!! I am taking the few that I haven’t already gobbled up to a dinner party this evening, and I will never waste my time on pre-made Toll House dough again! Thanks SO much for sharing this recipe!!

  32. Hi I’ve made these cookies a dozen times and they are delicious. But I was wondering if I could use this recipe to make a half sheet size cookie cake?

    I cannot tell you enough how Much I love these cookies. I found this recipe about a month a ago and I make at least a batch of these a week. These beat all store Bought or bakery bought cookies I have ever had. My fiancΓ©, who is the most critical cookie connisuer, says that these are his favorite without a doubt. Thank you!

  35. 5 stars
    I’m not sure what everyone is talking about but I dont think the recipe is that great. I had to bake them for 13 minutes and they don’t taste any different than the recipe that’s on the toll house chocolate chip bag. Just my opinion..

    1. I’m sorry you didn’t think they were that great. We’ve tried SO many recipes over the years and this one continues to be everyone’s favorite. Always so soft and yummy!

  36. 5 stars
    Yep! You win! Loved these! I took to our church Bible Study last night, and they were a hit. We had everyone bring their Fav. recipe of Chocolate chip cookies, and these WERE IT, if I can say so myself!
    I wonder if it’s the baking powder that makes them soft kinda thick? Never seen chocolate chip cookie recipe with backing powder…
    Love your stuff!

    These are wonderful! I made them for my husband to bring to work. I did one batch as-is and another substituting the last cup of flour for oats. They were both delicious, thanks!!

    This recipe just popped up on my Facebook feed and having nothing better to do (& having all the ingredients) thought I’d give them a go, really easy to make and absolutely delicious. Not sure these are going to last until Tuesday when I was planning on taking them into the office! Thanks Lil Luna!

    1. Thanks for the kind words! I’m so glad you like the recipe. We make these at least once a month – they’re the best. I hope you can find more recipes on the site that you enjoy as well. πŸ˜‰

  39. Hello! I’m on the Great Cookie Recipe hunt and I’m trying this recipe next! So far my favorite has been a cream cheese chocolate chip cookie but I need a great go to recipe that uses ingredients I usually have at home. Question for you though – salted or unsalted butter? I can’t believe no one else has asked!

  40. 5 stars
    My go-to recipe every time!! I just make sure to add a little extra flour so they don’t flatten out as much. In fact, so much extra flour that the dough is slightly crumbly and they’re super fat and the middle stays yummy. And I use 75% dark chips to be sassy. πŸ˜›

  41. Do you think I could make this recipe with all “white whole wheat” flour? I’ve not tried this flour in anything since my wife bought it.

    Thanks!
    John

    1. 5 stars
      I make these with white whole wheat flour and they turn out beautifully! I use a scant 3 cups, however, as the whole wheat flour seems to absorb more liquid.

    2. I haven’t tried that, so I honestly couldn’t tell you. I don’t see why they wouldn’t work out. I know a lot of people like to use that instead. I’d love to know if you make them with that flour!!

  42. 5 stars
    So I’m a few years later to the party it looks like, but I wanted to let you know how much I adore this recipe!!! I’ve been looking for a recipe that turns out consistent results each time I bake it, as well as on my different types of cookie sheets – this one delivers!!! I use a scant 3 cups white whole wheat flour, and canola oil. Today I tried melted coconut oil, and the cookies aren’t spreading quite as much as I’d like, but it is a cool, rainy day, unlike the relatively warm, humid days we’ve had lately. I also deviate from your original recipe in that I only use 1/4 c white sugar. Thank you for such an awesome recipe!!

  43. I can’t have butter but I can have margarine. Would substituting butter for magarine ruin the recipe or would it be okay?

    Thank you

  44. 5 stars
    These really are the best! If they’re turning out oily, maybe try creaming the butter and sugars for longer – a few minutes, really. So hard to mess them up!

    1. I haven’t tried that, so I’m not sure how they’d turn out without the oil. You can try unsweetened applesauce. Hope that helps πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!

  45. Hello there. I was just wondering how many cookies will this recipe make. If you could reply back that would be awesome. Thanks.

  46. 4 stars
    These are so yummy!! I was wondering how do I get them flatter .. they were more puffy didnt spread. I had to press them some which is so biggy but they stay in a ball just expanded some. I did use coconut oil instead.

    1. I haven’t used coconut oil before, so I’m not sure how that changes the recipe. Mine are more puffy, than flat, too. You could just press them more. Hope that helps! Thanks so much for giving them a try!!

  47. 5 stars
    I’ve made numerous recipes over the past 2 months for chocolate chip cookies… my husband has a crazy sweet tooth, okay I have just as big of one πŸ˜‰ but they never seem to turn out quite to our liking but this recipe… NAILED it!! I’m adding this to my all-time favorites!!

  48. I added 1/4 cup hot chocolate mix, an extra egg, and of the flour used, I used 1 cup wheat flour. I also then cooked it 2 minutes longer. They where amazing! They are also amazing just following this recipe! I have loved it both ways!

  49. 5 stars
    Awesome cookies! And mine looked just like the picture! I have tried lots of recipes and now I need to look no more! Thank you!!

  50. I’ve been baking cookies for years. Seriously the best cookie EVER! Made 3 batches and turns out EVERY SINGLE TIME!!

  51. 5 stars
    Yummy! This recipe was awesome! Only thing I did differently was cook the cookies for 10-11 minutes. Plus I used half white chocolate chips and half milk chocolate chips. Delicious!

  52. Does the dough need to chill before baking? Also do you bake the dough in balls that flatten as they bake or make disks before baking?

  53. 5 stars
    Great recipe, great cookie. Stuck with your ingredients and didn’t change anything. This is the cookie recipe I’ve been waiting for. Thanks!

  54. 5 stars
    With a medium cookie scoop, I found I had to cook these for 12 minutes. Otherwise they were raw dough inside. They tasted just okay. I don’t like the vegetable oil flavor in there. Next time will try with all butter…just afraid that will lead to them being not as soft when fully cooled.

  55. I’m baking these cookies for a birthday celebration, and I am eager to make them as perfect as possible! With that said, which would be preferred: light brown sugar or dark brown sugar? I’ve been baking for about a year, so I’m still only a bit of a beginner. Thank you! xx

    These are truly the Best chocolate chip cookies!! I will say, make sure you follow the directions. When it says cream butter and sugars……make sure you cream them. Then beat the eggs in until fluffy….do it. It’s important to mix it. I made the mistake once where I just dumped all the ingredients in the mixer and then scooped them on the cookie sheet and they were terrible! I mean, it was still edible, but you could tell it wasn’t right. I’ve been using your recipe for years that’s why I knew I did something wrong when I tasted the dumped in version. Great lesson learned, follow directions. These are really the best cookies I’ve ever made! I’ve been making cookies for over 25 years and this one is by far superior to any other recipe I’ve made. Thank you so much for sharing. This recipe will go into the recipe books for my kids when they get married or move out.

    1. This is my go-to recipe. I typically do 1 cup white chocolate and 1 cup milk chocolate and they are to die for. I want to eat them all. I started taking them to my students when I make them so they don’t all sit in my house staring at me. Love, love, love this recipe!

  57. I just made these and for some reason they came out cracked and had an odd after taste. I’m a super novice baker so I’m wondering what I messed up along the way! Any advice?

    Amazing !!! My husband said he wishes I hadn’t made so many because he can’t stop eating them ! I made sure to stash some for myself !!! Thank you.

    This has been my go to recipie since I found it several years ago. Just made it again for the millionth time (ok maybe a slight exaggeration) and they are just as good as the first time. I used to live in Salt Lake City and they turned out well that high above sea level. Now I’m in Las Vegas and they are still just as perfect. I’ve never seen a recipe do that transition so well. Thank you so much for sharing it!

  60. I’m finding that I have to back the cookies longer, in high altitude. I’m in Salt Lake City and it’s about 4500 to 5000 ft high. Have you experienced that? I think that your cookie recipe is the best one I have found. I make about 10 dozen cookies every week and a half. My husband takes them to his volunteering job. They love them.

    I’ve made these cookies countless times now, and everyone LOVES them!!! They’re also delicious to make into ice cream cookie sandwiches. Thank you so much for this recipe it is delicious!

    These were my go too cookies before I became vegan. So today I decided to figure it out. Subbed the oil and butter for one cup of coconut oil. I think I should have melted a half of that, and flax eggs for eggs. They turned out amazing! By not melting the coconut oil, my dough is very dry and crumbly. But it bakes up perfect. Next time I will give it a shot.

  63. I have a go-to chocolate chip recipe but will try yours. My question is can you add chopped nuts to this recipe? My family loves the chocolate chip and chopped nut mixture.

    OMG! These are amazing! I make them without fail every week for Shabbat. Delicious! The dough is the greatest dough to work with, and the cookies are just amazing… I can’t say enough about them! Never will I pin another cookies recipe. Thank you so much!

    These really are literally the best chocolate chip cookies. They are absolutely just the right amount of salty to off-set the sweet. I also use an organic milk chocolate wafer for the chocolate chips, resulting in an almost semi sweet flavor with a milk chocolate gooey texture. I am the favorite cookie baker of all my friends!

    I’m not usually one to go for chocolate chip cookies, but when I found this recipe…it’s all I ever bake! I love them. I’m actually about to bake some and was wondering if I wanted to add peanut butter, if that would work out and how much I would add?

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. The original recipe is so delicious. The cookies are nice and soft. I’ve made it with 1 cup of butter instead of using 1/2 c oil and they turn out just as fantastic. I’ve also used almond extract in place of the vanilla with white chocolate chips. My family always asks me to bring these to every gathering we have. Its the easiest and best recipe that I’ve found.
