I’ve been making these cookies a LONG time. In fact, here’s a picture of me making said cookies circa ~2003 😂.

Somehow this recipe never quite made it to the blog. It made it here (as cookie cake), but never as plain ol’ cookies. So here it is!

I feel like chocolate chips cookies can be so controversial – everyone has their own favorite – but I’m going there anyway. These are MY favorite classic chocolate chip cookies – no oats, nuts, or any other mix-ins (although I like chocolate chip cookies with nuts, oats, coconut, etc too!). Don’t underestimate a classic chocolate chip cookie. You can totally put a few sprinkles on each dough ball before you bake and make them “Christmasy” enough for any holiday cookie platter. Slightly crisp edges and chewy centers will have you coming back for just one more….and then maybe one more ;). Enjoy!

My Favorite Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups self-rising flour
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I like to use Hershey’s Special Dark)

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.
2. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the flour until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Chill dough in fridge at least an hour.
3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spraying baking sheets with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper.
4. Using a 1-1/2 tbsp scoop, place dough onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 10 minutes or until edges are lightly brown. Centers will not appear done but will set upon cooling.
