Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies perfect for any occasion!


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a stand alone mixer, or hand mixer, and beat the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Add the vanilla and eggs and beat on low speed until just combined.
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until crumbles form. Use your hands to press the crumbles together to form a dough that is easy to handle. Add the chocolate chips and incorporate using your hands.
  3. Use a mini ice cream scoop or spoon to scoop out small balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Press down lightly on each ball, just to flatten a little. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cookies look puffy and dry and just barely golden. Do not overbake!!!!!!
