  • 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


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. Cream Butter and Sugars:
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add Eggs and Vanilla:
    • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract until combined.

    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter and sugar mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  6. Add Chocolate Chips:
    • Fold in the semisweet chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  7. Shape Cookies:
    • Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart to allow for spreading.
  8. Bake:
    • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are set.
  9. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
    • Serve the chocolate chip cookies warm or at room temperature with a glass of milk or your favorite beverage.


  • You can customize these cookies by adding chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans) or using different types of chocolate chips (such as milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate) according to your preference.
