Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes about 36
  • ¾ cup (170 grams) unsalted butter,* melted
  • 1 cup (220 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup (133 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg (50 grams)
  • 1 large egg yolk (19 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon (18 grams) vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups (250 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup (42 grams) bread flour
  • 2 teaspoons (6 grams) cornstarch
  • ¾ teaspoon (3.75 grams) baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon (2.25 grams) kosher salt
  • 1½ cups (255 grams) semisweet chocolate morsels*
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars at medium speed until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Reduce mixer speed to medium-low. Add egg and egg yolk, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating just until combined (do not overmix). Gently stir in chocolate morsels. Using a 1-tablespoon scoop, drop dough at least 2 inches apart onto prepared pans. Place an additional small (1½ teaspoons) scoop of dough onto each cookie. Lightly press together.
  4. Bake until edges are just beginning to brown, 9 to 10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking. (Cookies may look under baked, but this helps achieve a soft and chewy cookie.) Bake sheet at a time for even cooking. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes. Using a thin spatula, remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

  1. This is THE BEST chocolate chip cookie ever. I used Jacobsen’s Sea Salt which is a perfect touch!

  2. Absolutely perfect! Thank you for sharing. This is going in our family recipe book! I have used a several dozen recipes over the years, and this is by far the most softest and chewiest! I have never had a cookie be consistently perfect. I swear I will never use another chocolate chip cookie recipe for the rest of my time.
