The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER!

NOTE: This post may contain affiliate links.




I love chocolate chip cookies and am always on the hunt for the perfect recipe. I am not a fan of flat cookies or soft batch cookies. My favorite recipes are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside with lots of chocolate chips!

I found this recipe from The Cozy Kitchen about a year ago and I think I make it at least once a month. I make the entire batch, freeze the balls and then place them in a plastic bag. That way whenever I or my husband want a warm cookie we jut pop them in the oven and viola, perfect, warm, ooey, gooey cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe from The Cozy Kitchen

Dry Mix:
31/3 cups all purpose flour
11/2 teaspoon baking powder
11/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet Mix:

1 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
11/2 cups firmly packed browns ugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
12 ounces dark chocolate chunks, or chips


In a medium bowl mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment add the melted butter, sugar and brown sugar, beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time until combined. Add the vanilla extract and beat once more.

Add the flour in one batch, then put a towel over your mixer and mix on low until flour is mostly incorporated, then turn up the speed until the flour in completely incorporated. Add the chocolate chips/chunks and mix again. Chill the dough for an hour or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350, line baking sheets with a sliphat baking mat or parchment paper then scoop out cookie with an ice cream scoop and place on the pan. Bake for 7-10 minutes until cookies are golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then move to cooling rack.


Garnish with Maldon Sea Salt Flakes just after you take out of the oven. 




If you are a fan of this recipe and want to make more of Adriannas' recipes from The Cozy Kitchen you can get the book as well.


Enjoy.
