Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe EVER

I have tested probably dozens, maybe even a hundred different cookie recipes, and by far, this is the one I always go back to. These cookies are pretty much bakery level cookies, that anyone can bake themselves, even you! You can make these cookies large or small, but they are best big, like 1/4 to 1/3 a cup of cookie dough for each cookie. These are cookies that will satisfy you with just one cookie, ok, maybe two. Still, they are rich, sweet, chewy and a luxurious treat for any holiday or just any day. In fact, they are probably best for those rainy or snowy days in the middle of winter, as the smell wafting through your house will be most welcome at that time of year.

4 cups Flour (all-purpose)
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 cup Butter (unsalted and melted)
1 cup White sugar
2 cup Brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 egg yolks
2 tbsp Vanilla
3 1/2 cups your favorite chocolate chunks or chips

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease baking sheets. Combine together the flour and baking soda with salt in a bowl. In separate bowl, cream the brown and white sugars and the melted butter, until well blended. Add in the vanilla extract, the eggs, and egg yolks until consistency is creamy. Add the flour and baking soda with salt mixture from the separate bowl, mixing until well blended. Stir in your favorite chocolate chunks or chips, by hand gradually. Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto the greased baking sheets. Place the cookies about 3″ apart, allowing room for spreading. Bake for approximately 15-18 min. at 325 degrees F, until a nice golden brown, avoid overbaking. Leave cookies on the baking sheets for a couple minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

Notes: There’s loads of variations possible with this wonderful recipe. You can always substitute the chocolate chips with any type of chocolate chip or chunk, including white chocolate, peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips or a mixture of the above. You can also use those colorful coated candies, plain or peanut or other types of candy that work well in a cookie. Feel free to experiment! Nuts can also be added, from walnuts to pecans and almonds to hazelnuts, they all work well. This recipe is excellent and works great with substitions like these. Though the classic cookie, made with the exact recipe above, is always amazing, you really don’t need anything other than the chocolate chips or chunks but feel free to do whatever you like. The verdict is in, and this recipe is always guilty! Guilty of being delicious!
