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!!
