Indulge in the timeless delight of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies with this easy-to-follow recipe. Whether you’re a seasoned baker or just starting out, these cookies are sure to impress with their perfect blend of sweetness and gooey chocolate goodness.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a smooth dough forms.
  6. Gently fold in the semisweet chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  7. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden brown around the edges.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, serve and enjoy these homemade chocolate chip cookies with a glass of cold milk or your favorite hot beverage!

Tip: For an extra special touch, sprinkle a pinch of sea salt over the cookies just before baking to enhance the flavor profile.
