I tested out this cookie recipe three times just to make sure it was good. For science. And yep! It was amazing every time! They are large! (1/4 cup of dough per cookie) but they don’t flatten out like pancakes due to the way the dough is shaped before baking.

Course: Dessert
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 13

Ingredients

  • 12 T butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups plus 2 T flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips, plus more for the top

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325° F. Prepare 2 cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, add butter and sugars. Beat with an electric mixer until creamy and fluffy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla. Beat together until combined.
  • Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together until combined.
  • Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Take 1/4 cup of dough and shape it into a ball, but pinch the top half of the dough upwards as tall as it can go while still having a sturdy base (see below for picture of how the dough should be formed). Use your fingers to gently press the base of the dough to the cookie sheet so it doesn’t fall over while baking.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. Don’t overcook.
  • Immediately after baking, press 3-5 chocolate chips into the top of each cookie, just for looks.
  • Let cool on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
