  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons butter at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon egg, well beaten (beat an egg, then measure out 1 tablespoon)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • scant 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Cream together the butter and sugars using a fork. A 2-cup glass measuring cup is perfect for this.
  • Break the egg in a small bowl and whisk it well with a fork. Measure out the needed amount of egg and add it to the butter mixture. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Then add the chocolate chips and stir to incorporate.
  • Spoon onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a baking mat. Plan on 6 to 8 cookies (I always end up with 7 when I use my cookie scoop).
  • Bake at 375 for 8-11 minutes.
  • Let cool on the baking sheet and enjoy!


  • If you like a more "cake-like" cookie, feel free to add an additional 1 tablespoon of egg (for 2 tablespoons total) and an additional 1 tablespoon of flour. This produces a fluffier cookie.
  • You can increase the chocolate chips to 1/3 cup if you'd like.
  • Use whatever chocolate chips you like.
  • This recipe will work fine with margarine if that's what you have on hand.
