Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

The best every chocolate chip cookie recipe that is easy and fast, with no wait time in the fridge or specialty ingredients! This recipe was adapted from the Ghiradelli recipe on the back of their chocolate chip bags!
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time11 mins
Total Time26 mins


  • 2 1/4 cups unsifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups+ semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • Sea Salt or Salt Flakes (for topping)


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and creamy.
  • Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Mix until incorporated.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients into the butter and sugar mixture until just incorporated.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Drop large heaping scoops (I use an ice cream scoop) of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Top with sea salt flakes. (You can also add the salt flakes after baking for a prettier look, but I prefer to do before so they stick a little better.)
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
