Yield: 48 Cookies

Total Cook Time: 53-55 min.

Prep: 15 min.

Bake Time: 8-10 min.

Cool: 30 min.


  • 2 1/4 all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional)


  1. Preparation: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. Dry Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream the Butter & Sugars: In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer or by hand, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth and well combined.
  4. Add Egg & Vanilla: Beat in the egg until smooth. Add the vanilla extract and mix until incorporated.
  5. Combine Dry & Wet Mixtures: Gradually blend in the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  6. Stir in Chocolate & Nuts: With a spatula or wooden spoon, fold in the chocolate chips. If you’re using nuts, fold them in as well.
  7. Shape Cookies: Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Ensure there’s enough space between each cookie as they will spread out slightly when baking.
  8. Bake: Place the baking sheets in the preheated oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are lightly golden. The center should still be soft.
  9. Cool: Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes. Then transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  10. Serve & Enjoy: Once cooled, serve your delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies and enjoy!
