Description

The thickest and chewiest chocolate chip cookies. Hands down the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever had! This is my most requested recipe!

Ingredients

  • 4-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Coarse Sea Salt
  • 2 sticks Butter, Softened
  • ½ cups Shortening
  • 1-½ cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 bag Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, 10-12 Ounce Bag

Preparation

1. In a large bowl mix together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and stir to combine.

3. Add your dry ingredients into the wet ones and stir just until everything is combined. Do not over mix. Mix in the mini chocolate chips.

4. Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop dough into rounded discs and place on a plate that’s small enough to fit into your freezer. Freeze for at least 2 hours or up to 3 months.

5. If you’re not going to use the dough right away, transfer the frozen dough to a freezer bag to keep them fresh.

6. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

7. Place frozen dough directly onto a greased cookie sheet leaving about 2 inches between each.

8. Bake for about 15 minutes or until you see golden brown spots form on top. Remove from oven and allow to cool a bit before serving.

I’m so glad you like these cookies rinabeana! I always make a big batch and freeze them, then whenever I have a craving I make 2 or 3 – that way I don’t end up eating them all!

I admit it. I was skeptical. How could this be the world’s best chocolate chip cookie recipe? I’m a devotee of Alton Brown’s chewy recipe. In fact, those cookies garnered me a marriage proposal and have always gotten rave reviews. However, this recipe seemed similar in principle, and both my husband and I love chocolate chip cookies, so I gave it a whirl. And I ate my words, along with numerous cookies. These are the WORLD’S BEST chocolate chip cookies. They may be the most delicious cookie I’ve ever tasted. They’re puffy and chewy and perfect! The best part is that they didn’t spread out on the baking sheet, which is a problem I often have with Alton’s recipe. They came out exactly like the picture. (However, I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips, which are not mini.) I love that you can freeze the dough patties and bake on demand. Thank you so much for sharing! This is absolutely my go-to recipe now!
