The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies To Make

Serene Herrera lives in Texas, makes meals, and created the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe on March 6, 2020. People try to find the perfect recipe because they don’t want to have a stale cookie or too watery of a cookie. People have tried very long to have the perfect recipe for lots of things including chocolate chip cookies. Cookies should be an enjoyable and relaxing dessert but if you find one that is not popular, then the cookies might not turn out right and they might need some tweaks to improve the recipe to meet your standards.


    • ½ cup unsalted butter , room temperature
    • ¾ cup light brown sugar
    • ¼ cup white sugar
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 cups all purpose flour
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans, can be omitted


  • Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat, set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the butter and sugar. Using a hand or stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy.
  • Add in the large egg, vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until combined. The dough might seem to be in crumbles as mentioned above.
  • Pour in the chocolate chips and pecans (if using) and use your hands to mix them in. This will bring the dough together. Be gentle though. We don’t want to compact the dough too much. We want to keep it as airy as possible.
  • Divide the dough into 6 pieces. Gently form into cookie form. Place on the baking sheet.
  • Chill the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 during this time.
  • Bake the cookies for about 16-18 minutes. The outside will be golden brown.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to continue cooling. The cookies need to cool prior to serving. They are best at room temperature.


These chocolate chip cookies contain 598k calories per serving and 28g of fat. They have 7g of protein and 524 iu of Vitamin A. As you can see, these chocolate chip cookies have a healthy side, unlike most other chocolate chip cookies. These cookies are very thick but are on the harder side to make but are worth the wait. This is great for a whole family feast because you will most likely have the perfect amount for lots of cookies.

Serene initially made this batch on May 23, 2018, but with less vanilla extract. According to Serene, in the first batch of cookies, the chocolate chips melted better.

I recommend making these in the wintertime and enjoying them by the fireplace with family, but you could also make them in the summer for a bake sale or a birthday party.
