  • 8 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar I use raw sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until almost completely melted. It shouldn't be boiling or hot just melted.
  • Add the sugars (brown and white). Mix thoroughly
  • Add the vanilla and egg. Mix well.
  • In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, and salt). Mix well.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix very well. Dough should start to form.
  • Add chocolate chips and mix until well incorporated.
  • Use a cookie scoop for the cookies. that should give you 12 cookies. Set them two inches apart on a cookies sheet.
  • DO NOT OVER BAKE! Take them out even if they don't look fully baked. Remember they will continue to cook on the hot pan when you take them out the oven.
  • Bake them from 9-11 minutes. 10 seems to be the sweet spot for me.
  • Take them out and let them cool on the pan for about 30 minutes.
