The BEST traditional chocolate chip cookie! Gooey on the inside and the perfect crispy edges.


Yield: 12-15 cookies

1 stick butter, softened (not melted)

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 cup flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup chocolate chips or chunks



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Place softened butter and sugars into a stand mixer (or use a hand mixer). Cream for 1-2 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla, mix until combined.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the salt, flour, baking soda and baking powder until combined. Slowly add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
  5. Add in the chocolate chips and stir until fully incorporated.
  6. Scoop 2 Tbsp sized balls of dough onto a prepared baking pan (2 inches apart). Bake for 10-12 minutes or until JUST cooked/ browned on the edges (this creates the gooey center!).
  7. Allow cookies to cook 5-7 minutes to set up before serving or storing.
