  • Baking Tray
  • Parchment Paper/ Silicon Mat


  • 1 Cup + 2 Tbsps (141 g) All Purpose Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup (1 stick) 113 g Unsalted Butter (melted and slightly cooled)
  • 6 Tbsp (75 g) Granulated Sugar
  • 6 Tbsp (75 g) Brown Sugar
  • 1 large Egg (at room temp)
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips


  • Whisk melted butter and both sugars together till combined. Add in vanilla and egg. Whisk well to combine.
  • Sift flour, baking soda and salt over wet ingredients and combine just until flour disappears.
  • Gently fold in chocolate chips. Cover and chill the dough for 2 hours or up to 2 days in the refrigerator.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven at 375 deg F and line 2 baking sheet with silicon mats or parchment paper.
  • Divide the dough into 18 equal sized portions. Each cookie dough ball will be about heaping 2 Tbsps. Form balls out of these portions, place them 2 inches apart and bake for 9-11 minutes.
  • The cookies will look pale and fluffy. The edges will be light golden. Cool the cookies on the baking tray for 5 minutes. Cookie will flatten out during this time. Transfer them to a wire rack to complete cooling.


Storage Info: 
  • The cookies will stay fresh for about 3-4 days at room temp covered tightly.
  • Both baked cookies and unbaked cookie dough balls can be frozen. Thaw baked cookies on the counter top for a few hours before serving. No need to thaw unbaked cookie dough balls. Just bake them for an extra minute.
Quick Tips:
  • My number 1 tip would be to use a kitchen scale to measure ingredients.
  • Do not over mix the cookie dough.
  • While baking a second batch of cookies in the same tray, don't put cookie dough balls on hot tray.
  • Allow the cookie dough to chill for a few hours before baking. This will enhance the texture and flavor profile of your cookies and they won't over spread.
