Treat Tuesday #182 (Happy Book Birthday)

Treat Tuesday:  Actually Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

*I believe I ran across this recipe via Facebook.  I'm always looking for new chocolate chip recipes.

*I have my own which I think is pretty good, but willing to try new ones to see if I can improve what I already do pretty well.

*As I'm writing this on Sunday our plan is to maybe try this recipe this afternoon with my wife.  They look so tasty...


"Actually Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies are just that...PERFECT! Super soft and extra chocolatey cookies just how I think all cookies should be!"

Yield: 36 cookies
Prep Time: 
Cook Time: 
Total Time: 


  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips


  1. Stir melted butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until well combined.
  2. Add in egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Mix until lighter in color.
  3. Add in the flour, baking soda and salt. Scrape the sides of the bowl and the bottom really well to ensure a smooth, well stirred batter. 
  4. Hand stir the chocolate chips into the batter and let it sit 20 minutes to let the flour soak into the rest of the batter. (The warm melted butter will help with this.)
  5. Preheat oven to 325. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and scoop cookie dough onto prepared pans, using a two tablespoon cookie scoop.
  6. Bake 8-9 minutes, rotating sheets half way through baking. When you pull your cookies out of the oven, they will looked cooked around the edges and undercooked in the center. 
  7. Leave the cookies on the hot baking pans for 5-7 minutes or until you can remove them without falling apart. Place onto cooling racks and cool to room temperature before storing in air tight containers.
