The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ever

By Scott

What You Need:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter, melted 3/4 cup white sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 eggs 12 ounces chocolate chips 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Instructions:

Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

-->

In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt.

-->

In a large bowl, stir the melted butter and sugars. Blend in the vanilla and eggs.

-->

Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Gently mix in chocolate chips and nuts.

-->

Scoop dough into balls and place on the baking sheets a few inches apart.

-->

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, rotating halfway. Centers should look just set.

-->

Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Tips:

Use high quality chocolate chips for best flavor. Chilling dough for over 30 minutes makes chewier cookies.

Tips:

For soft centers, slightly underbake. Store completely cooled cookies in a sealed container for up to 1 week.
