Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp salt (reduce to a pinch if using salted butter)
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips, chunks, or a combination

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars together with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy.
  • Add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed.
  • Add flour and baking soda, mix until just combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips. I like using a combination of milk chocolate and Skor toffee bits. Or dark and white chocolate!
  • Drop heaping tablespoons of dough on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Flatten slightly. I like to use a small ice cream scoop for uniform-size cookies.
  • Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before removing. Transfer to a wire rack.
  • Try to eat just one!
