Scrumptious Chocolate Chip Cookies

A delight for your tastebuds

From gooey to crispy to chewy— what counts as the BEST cookie varies from person to person. But one thing is clear: a good chocolate chip cookie is one of the best things to nibble on any time of the year. Add a glass of milk, and with each bite, let your childhood memories go wild.

As an extra special treat for your grandkids, spoon a dollop of ice cream* between two freshly baked cooled cookies to create a custom ice cream sandwich just for them. You will see the delight in the sparkle of their eyes! 

Servings: 8 | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips + ½ cup for placing on top


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the baking soda, flour, and salt in a mixing bowl and set it aside. 
  3. In another bowl, with a mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until it is creamy. 
  4. Add the vanilla and egg and beat the mixture until blended. 
  5. Slowly add in the flour mixture, beating to combine all ingredients. 
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Use a 1 tablespoon scoop or measuring spoon to place dough onto a cookie sheet evenly. For a bakery look, add a few extra chocolate chips on top of each scoop of cookie dough. 
  8. Bake for 9–11 minutes, then let the cookies cool for 2 minutes.
  9. Move the cookies onto a cooling rack and let them cool completely.

*If anyone in your family is lactose intolerant or dairy-free, substitute the ice cream with a milk alternative.
