Let me tell you about The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies I have ever tasted…

Wow.  That was a title, wasn’t it?  It was totally meant to grab your attention.

And now that I’ve got it, I will share with you an awesome recipe.  These are so, so good.  They taste like a cookie you might get from a bakery or coffee house.  And you can make them in your own home!! 

I have always used the good, old, Nestle Tollhouse cookie recipe.  Because I don’t like change.  But in this case, change was definitely good!  There will be no more tollhouse cookies in this house for sure!

So here goes.  And I really apologize.  To someone.  I got this recipe a while ago from some website.  I don’t remember where.  You see, I have this bad habit of copying down recipes from the internet on scraps of paper near my computer… and then I don’t actually try the recipe for six months… and by then I can’t remember where I got it.  So thanks, and sorry, to the awesome (nameless) baker who came up with this recipe!

Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

12 Tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 egg yolk

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 to 2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.  In another bowl combine butter and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix until blended.  Add chocolate chips.  Scoop six 1/4 cup balls of dough onto cookie sheet (I used an ice cream scoop and it worked well… you want these cookies to be large!!).  Bake for 15 minutes.


P.S. Got a favorite cookie recipe?  Share it with me!

  1. FYI, and in the interest of giving credit where credit is due… I found out that this recipe is originally from the cookbook “Baking Illustrated” and was called Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies.
