  • Summary

    Pinned over 3 million times, these super soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies are the most popular cookie recipe on my website. Melted butter, 1 extra egg yolk, and more brown sugar than white sugar guarantee the chewiest chocolate chip cookie texture. Chilling the cookie dough is imperative. No mixer required! 

    Ingredients

    • 2 and 1/4 cups (280g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch*
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks or 170g) unsalted butter, melted & slightly cooled*
    • 3/4 cup (150g) packed light or dark brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
    • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
    • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    • 1 and 1/4 cups (225g) semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate chunks
