Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I almost called this recipe: ‘The Chewiest, Yummiest Chocolate Chip Cookie in the World’, yup, I said it. This is without a doubt the world’s most delicious cookie. It is. I swear. You’ll be the hero of every bake sale and every mom in town will want your cookie recipe, even if you don’t have kids, all the moms in town will know who you are because of this cookie recipe… Just saying. I must point out though that there is nothing healthy or low fat about these cookies but we all deserve a treat!

Makes about 40 Cookies

1 Cup brown sugar

½ Cup granulated (white) sugar

¾ Cup softened butter

2 (Large) eggs (at room temperature)

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 2 tbsp (I used white flour…eek!)

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

1 270-300 g bag of semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl mix the granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla until smooth.

In another large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.

Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg and butter mixture.

When the dough has come together, stir in the chocolate chips.

On ungreased cookie sheets, drop the dough by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart.

Bake for 8 minutes, until the edges have started to brown. The top of the cookie will be pale and it will be really soft but the bottom of the cookie will be brown.

Leave the cookies on the baking sheet to cool for 5 minutes and then transfer them to cooling racks.


  1. Make sure you let the cookies sit before you transfer them to the baking sheet because they’re not completely cooked when they come out of the oven; they finish on the cooling rack!
  1. Use a spatula to transfer the cookies because they’re really soft at this point.
  1. These are not at all healthy; no way, now how. These are full fat, real sugar and naughty but man they are so good!
