Best chewy chocolate chip cookies recipe

These cookies are the best. They stay chewy for days! They are my Bride’s favorite cookies. Sometimes I will scoop them into balls and freeze the balls and take out a few at a time to bake as needed to save time when wanting a yummy cookie. Tell me about your experience with them!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled until warm
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate


Place oven racks in the upper and lower 1/3’s of the oven. Preheat oven to 325 put parchment paper on cookie sheets (this keeps the cookies from sticking) Mix butter and sugars with with a mixer until blended and smooth, add egg, yolk & vanilla. Mix until incorporated. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in chips and optional nuts. Divide into 18 equal balls, a 2’ cookie scoop works just about perfectly, about 60 gms each. EVENLY space 9 on each cookie sheet. Bake for 12-18 minutes, rotating front to back and top to bottom after 8 minutes. (I typically go for 12 minutes, 8 minutes on the top rack, then rotate and move down to the bottom rack for 4) Cool on sheets to maintain chewy texture.
