If you’re looking for those bakery-style cookies that are big, chewy, and delicious, then this is the best chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe for you!


  • Flour (3 Cups)
  • Baking Soda (1 Teaspoon)
  • Salt (1/4 Teaspoon)
  • Butter, Melted (1 Cup)
  • Granulated Sugar (1 Cup)
  • Brown Sugar, Packed (1 Cup)
  • Eggs (2)
  • Vanilla Extract (1 Teaspoon)
  • Chocolate Chips (2 Cups or 1 Package of 250 Grams)


  1. Prepare: Preheat oven to 350° F or 177° C. Prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Dry ingredients: In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Wet ingredients: In a separate medium or large bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  4. Combine: Slowly mix in the dry mixture into the wet mixture until fully combined and smooth. With a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Chill: Place the cookie dough in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  6. Bake: Scoop out about 1 heaping tablespoon of cookie dough per cookie and place it on the baking sheet. Leave at least 1 inch between each cookie, so they have room to expand while they bake. The cookies should be about the size of a golf ball. Use approximately half of the cookie dough and place the remaining cooking dough back in the fridge while the first batch bakes. Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden. When removing the baked cookies from the oven, tap the pan firmly on the counter a few times to deflate the cookies and give the cookies crinkled edges.
  7. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.
