My all-time favorite cookies: Super soft, melt-in-your-mouth, chocolate chip cookies with giant dark chocolate chips…the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe!!
  • 1 ½ cups + 2 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour OR Better Batter Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Butter, softened to room temperature
  • ¾ cup Dark Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips (plus more for topping, if desired)
  1. In a large mixing bowl whisk to combine Flour, Baking Powder, Cornstarch, Baking Soda, Cinnamon, and Salt. Set aside.
  2. In another large mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer, cream together room temperature Butter and Dark Brown Sugar until very creamy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber scraper as needed.
  3. Add Egg and Vanilla, and continue to beat for another 1-2 minutes, until very fluffy.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients. Using a large spoon or rubber spatula, slowly stir until everything is just combined. Do not overmix. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or up to 3 days.
  6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove dough from refrigerator.
  7. Working quickly so as to keep the dough as cold as possible, roll dough (or use a cookie scoop to scoop dough) into golfball-sized balls (about 2-3 Tablespoons) and evenly space on baking sheets.
  8. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, until puffy and golden brown. The cookies will look slightly underbaked, and this is what you want!
  9. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for another 10-12 minutes, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Cookies freeze well in a ziplock freezer bag for up to 3 months.
  11. Makes 14-18 cookies (Depending on size)
