Servings 24 cookies


  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 6 tbsp granulated sugar
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and both sugars.
  • Add egg and vanilla and mix all ingredients together.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together all dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix together until cookie dough forms.
  • Use a spatula to fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Wrap cookie dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (however, more is better!). If you're in a rush, you can place it in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Once the cookie dough is done chilling, remove from the fridge/freezer and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll out cookie dough into 1 inch spheres. Place gently on the baking sheet, keeping them about an inch and a half apart from each other. You should be able to fit 12 on a standard-sized baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Serve with milk and enjoy!
