THE BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies- EVER

I love chocolate. I love cookies. So of course, I looooove chocolate chip cookies. I've always enjoyed the good ol' Nestle Tolle House Cookies from the chocolate chip package, but the following recipe changed my life! Ok, so maybe a slight exaggeration, but let me tell you these cookies are simply a-m-a-z-i-n-g. In fact, if I had any desire to open a bakery I do believe these would make me rich. But instead, I'm going to share the recipe with you :o)

2 1/4 C. bread flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 sticks of butter, melted
1/4 C. white sugar
1 1/4 C. packed dark brown sugar (light brown is ok too)
1 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract (use the good stuff)
1 whole egg. 1 egg yolk, 2 Tbs. whole milk
2 C. (1 pkg) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 F

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Beat melted butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl until creamy. Add whole egg, egg yolk, and milk into mix, one at a time beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Chill (very important!). Drop by rounded teaspoon (or use an icecream scoop like I do) onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown- usually closer to 9 minutes. They will look slightly undercooked in the middle, but this is when they're just perfect. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Always start your cookies on a cool pan.


It's impossible to keep little hands away from cookies!

Pure satisfaction. How do you like the chocolate smile?


  1. Ooh, thanks! I'm on the hunt for the best recipe since they're Wes's favorite thing EVER. He was sitting next to me as I scrolled to the pictures and went "WHOA!"

  2. Awesome. Let me know how they turn out when you make them.

  3. Please email or bring this recipie to me. Or better yet, bring me a sample of the cookies!
    As you know, I am computer challenged and I am not sure how to clip and paste it from your site!

  4. From a Nestie on my anniversary board from WV: "THANK YOU! They really were the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had. I made them for our get together on Saturday and the recipe makes a VERY large batch. I didn't think they all would be gone at the end of the day, but they were! They were soft and moist. I was really surprised and everyone complimented them. Thanks for the post!"

  5. That's awesome! I love sharing great recipes- I'll have to do it on here more often!
