These Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies are thick and full of chocolate chips! They’re super simple to prepare and they are such a crowd pleasing cookie recipe!



  • 3/4 cup (168g) salted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (108g) light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/4 cup (52g) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups (293g) all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
2. Cream butter and sugars together in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. You should actually be able to see the change in color and texture.
3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
4. With the mixer on low speed, add flour, cornstarch, baking soda and baking powder.
5. Stir in the chocolate chips. The dough will be thick.
6. Scoop out each cookie using a 1/4 cup measuring spoon. They should be in the shape of thick discs.
7. Bake for 11-12 minutes. The center of the cookie will still look a little undercooked, but that’s ok.
8. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 1 minute, then remove to finish cooling on a cooling rack.
