Generic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Watch the video to learn how to make my special recipe! 

What type of chocolate chip cookies do you like? Do you like small round cookies? Large flat and crispy ones? I prefer cookies like the ones in the photos above.  Flat and crispy with large chocolate chips. I also like chewiness in the middle. I know there are many chocolate chip cookie recipes, and many know how to make them, but I could not help posting this recipe, because I love chocolate chip cookies so much.

Recipe serves: 12  (Only if you make large cookies).
Recipe from Novak Niedenfuehr household with a nod to Emily Luchetti.

  • 4 ounces of soft sweet butter ( 1 stick) 
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar  (The recipe says light brown sugar but I use white) 
  • 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract 
  • 1 1/4 cup of flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda 
  • 1/2 teaspoon fo salt 
  • 3/4 cup of large chocolate chips 
  • Set oven to 350 degrees if you are planning to bake the cookies right away after you make the dough. 
  • Make sure you have set the butter out to come to room temperature. 
  • Put the butter in the bowl of electric mixer and use paddle attachment. 
  • Mix (cream) butter on medium speed for a few minutes. 
  • Add both sugars. Beat till fluffy and light. 
  • Add the egg. 
  • Add the vanilla. 
  • Add the dry ingredients. 
  • Remove paddle attachment and add the chocolate chips. Stir them into the dough. 
  • Chill the dough for 30 minutes before baking the cookies. 
  • Form the dough into balls and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Make sure they are at least three to four inches apart. 
  • Bake the cookies about fifteen minutes until golden brown. 
  • After you are done remember to let them cool! 

Chocolate Chip Cookies- Another recipe
This recipe makes cookies that are a little more puffed up. They do not spread out as much. 
  • 4 oz of butter 
  • 1/2 cup of sugar 
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla 
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour 
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda 
  • 1 teaspoon of hot water 
  • 1 cup of chips 
  • Make these cookies the same way as the description above. 
  • Add the hot water after you have incorporated the dry ingredients into the mixture. 
Each cookie is between 250-300 calories for both recipes!
