Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monday, May 30, 2022
These really to me are the Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies and so addicting you can't stop at one cookie no way no how.


This cookie recipe is made with cake flour, and all-purpose flour, but these are ingredients to make them absolutely perfect in shape and flavor.


I have tried so many recipes over the last 20 years everyone always claims they're the best but these have to be the best because I always go back to making this chocolate chip cookie recipe.


Chocolate chips are famous and there are hundreds of recipes on the net, but if you want bakery-style cookies, these are the recipe you're looking for.


You can control crispy to chewy just by over baking or under baking, so make them how you like them and test a few before making a whole cookie sheet full.


If you are a cookie jar cookie lover, do try my family's Everything Cookies, Chocolate Chip Shortbread recipe, Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe, and oatmeal cookies!


Scroll down to this easy recipe and give them a try!



these are the perfect baked chocolate chip cookies

Crunchy or Soft



They are soft inside and crispy outside but it's all how they're shaped and how long you cook them.


I love cookies crunchy so I make flattened ones for me and leave some round and high for my cookie monsters in the house that love the softer kind.


If you bake them until set then they will be softer or cook them longer until darker brown then they are crunchy just how I like them!

  5. Store these in an airtight container with wax paper between the cookies for freshness
  6. Always cream the two sugars with butter for at least 3 to 4 minutes
  7. Try using almond  or coconut extract instead of vanilla for a different flavored cookie
  8. The cornstarch keeps them in the shape whether round or high and so easy to mold
  9. Remember to experiment with the style you like cooking longer or shorter times, flatten with the palm of your hand for thinner cookies
  10. use an ice cream scoop for same size uniform cookies

Best Chocolate Chips Claim to Fame



Hey this is my favorite kind tried and true, I get it we are all different and some of us like different things to add, right?


So, if you're shaking your head and hate nuts Don't ADD them, or prefer pistachios, pecans or another add them! If you don't like dark chocolate chips use milk, white, semi-sweet, and adapt away.


The only thing you should never change using real Butter with another fat like oil or margarine that is a must! Enjoy!


Don't forget to smash them down thin for crispy browned cookies like the one below for thick and softer cookies leave them in rounds!
