Author: Cristen


  • 2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter at room temperature (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar plus 1/4 cup for rolling dough balls in

  • 3/4 bag of mini chocolate chips add full 12 oz. bag if you like lots of chocolate!


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, add butter and sugars, beat together until combined and fluffy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Add flour, mix only until combined.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. Scoop with mini ice cream scoop (roughly one scant tablespoon) into balls, roll in granulated sugar.
  • Place on greased or lined baking sheet 2-3 inches apart.
  • Gently depress tops to make a flat, thick disk. Sprinkle on a bit more sugar, if desired.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes, bake for 10 minutes if you like more of an underdone cookie. Cool.
  • Serve piled high into a styrofoam cup for full effect, alongside a giant glass of milk.
