Easy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Easy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are a breeze to make and perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth! They require minimal ingredients and effort, making them ideal for beginner bakers or when you’re short on time.


  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (or your favorite mix-ins)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper or grease them lightly.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. This will take a few minutes with an electric mixer.

  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is well incorporated before adding the next. Then, stir in the vanilla extract.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to tough cookies.

  5. Fold in the chocolate chips (or your chosen mix-ins) until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

  6. Use a spoon or ice cream scoop to drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie for spreading.

  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are slightly soft.

  8. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • For chewier cookies, bake them for a minute or two less.
  • Feel free to experiment with different mix-ins like chopped nuts, dried fruit, or peanut butter chips.
  • Let the dough chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before baking for thicker cookies.
  • Enjoy your delicious homemade cookies with a cold glass of milk!
