I made this recipe for the first time a little over a year ago. They were a hit, but I haven’t made them since because they are so huge and I try to limit the size of my sweets. However, they were too good to resist making again!

Makes: 18 cookies

Adapted from: All Recipes


2 c all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c butter, melted (1.5 sticks)
1 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment paper and spray.

In the bowl of a stand mixer or a medium bowl if using a hand mixer, cream together the melted butter and both sugars until well blended. Add in and beat the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk. Mix in the flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir in the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.

Scoop out 1/4 c of batter for each cookie and place about 3 inches apart.

Bake for 15-17 minutes. Cool for a minute on the cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.


These cookies really are quite easy! Eventually I’ll get around to trying out all the different ‘top’ chocolate chip recipes out there, but until then, these and the recipe on the side of the Nestle chocolate chip bag will get me by just fine! Make sure that you don’t bake them too long or they become rock hard instead of nice and soft. I also made some a little smaller and they were great that way too. Take them out just as they start to brown and before they completely fall in the middle.
