2 Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monday’s are hard. Sometimes after a long hard Monday you just want a glass of wine and a big warm chocolate chip cookie.

This recipe is amazing; it makes 2 big Ooey Gooey chocolate chip cookies. Perfect for you and a friend, or just eat them both yourself, don’t feel bad, Monday’s are hard!

What you need,

2 tbsp. butter, softened, I used salted
2 tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
Pinch of kosher salt, l left this out because I used salted butter
¼ tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg yolk, save the white part for something else, I hear they freeze well.
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ cup all-purpose flour
3 heaping tbsp. chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat or parchment paper and set aside.

Stir together the butter, sugars, salt (if you are using) and vanilla until it comes together.

Add the egg yolk and stir until mixture gets a little light and fluffy.

Stir in baking soda and flour until combined. Finally stir in the chocolate chips.

Divide the dough into 2 balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. The cookies will spread out during cooking so put them about 6 inches apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until they edges are nicely browned and the centre looks soft but set.

Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Well cool enough that you can stuff it in your face without burning your lips off!
So about 10 minutes.

There you have it. A perfect snack for a hard day!

These cookies are perfectly crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.
I fear I may be using this recipe all too often!

Happy Monday!



  1. Jen! What are you thinking? Who only wants two cookies! If I'm heating the oven and getting out the ingredients there's got to be more of a reward - there will be no restraint shown here! And hey, if you can't deal with 'left overs' just call me - I have some free time, I can come by.

  2. This is waaaaaaaaaaaaay too dangerous! I am shaking my fist at you through cyberspace! I will never be able to resist making these!
