Have you ever wondered How to Make Soft, Thick, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies? I am sharing my tips for the best chocolate chip cookies ever, and showing you how easy they are to make!
This recipe for the perfect soft baked, chewy chocolate chip cookie came to me after many, many recipe testing sessions. I’ve been baking chocolate chip cookies my whole life – they’re my favorite cookie! I really wanted to create a bakery style cookie at home with simple, everyday ingredients, and not a lot of time. This is it, kids!
These cookies are SO thick, SO soft, SO packed full of melty chocolate….I’m telling you: Best cookie I’ve ever eaten!
The biggest change I made to this recipe versus my usual favorite, is that I added 2 TBS of canola oil to the batter. This simple addition kept these cookies soft and fresh for over a week!!
My second tip to a great chocolate chip cookie is to add 2 TBS of cornstarch to the dough. It makes the cookies fluffy and soft!
Tip #3, I added 2 types of chips, which sounds so simple but it really made a big difference in the flavor. Mini semi sweet chips and milk chocolate chips are the perfect combination and they fill every bite with oozy, melty, chocolate goodness!
Tip #4, Let the dough chill for about an hour. This helps ensure that the cookie doesn’t spread too much while baking.
And finally, tip #5, When scooping the dough onto the cookie sheet, pile the dough high! I just used a regular spoon and heaped large spoonfuls of dough onto the tray, making sure they were tall! This helps create a nice thick cookie!
These cookies are buttery and chewy, thick and soft, and full of chocolate chips! You need to try these!!

How to Make Soft, Thick, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
|Prep time||1 hour, 15 minutes|
|Cook time||10 minutes|
|Total time||1 hour, 25 minutes|
- 1 cup butter (softened)
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 1/4 cups flour
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
|In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, oil, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and salt and mix until combined. Add in the baking soda and cornstarch and half of the flour and mix well. Pour in the remaining flour and mix only until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and cover and chill for one hour.|
|Preheat oven to 350 |
Drop heaping spoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, making sure the piles of dough are nice and tall. *If using a cookie scoop, scoop one ball of dough right on top of another one. This is what makes the cookies thick!
Bake 7-8 minutes for medium sized cookies or 10 minutes for large cookies. Pull them from the oven when the edges are slightly golden and the centers look just barely done. After 2 minutes remove cookies from sheets onto cooling racks.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
