The BEST Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  • Author: Jenna Braddock, RD
  • Total Time: 32 minutes
  • Yield: 48 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 1/2 sticks of butter (softened)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 1/2 cups leveled all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (roughly chopped)


  1. In a mixing bowl (or stand mixer) beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed till very creamy, about 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add to the butter both the white and brown sugar. Beat again on medium speed until well incorporated, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Crack both eggs into the batter and add vanilla extract. Beat on low speed for 1-2 minutes, ensuring eggs are fully incorporated. Scrape the bottom of the bowl with a spatula to ensure batter mixes evenly.
  4. Next add the salt, baking powder and baking soda then beat for 1 minute.
  5. Add the flour in 1 cup increments, mixing on low speed after each addition until just mixed in. Scrape the bottom of the bowl with a spatula throughout.
  6. Pour in all 4 types of chocolate chips and mix on low to blend in.
  7. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet pan by placing a sheet of parchment paper on it. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out all dough in individual balls onto prepared baking sheet pan. Place baking pan in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep a baking sheet pan by lining with parchment paper or silicon mat. Place frozen dough balls on baking pan about 2" apart, likely a 3x4 formation.
  9. Bake for 12-13 minutes, when edges are golden brown. Cookies will not be completely golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes then move to a cooking rack.


Be sure to turn off the mixer in between steps.
