Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I saw this recipe a while ago and decided I must try it–it had five stars and tons of reviews, and I’m a sucker for those huge chewy bakery style chocolate cookies. Although the cookies are good and the title lives up to its name–they are in fact big, fat, and chewy–this recipe won’t be replacing my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe [1].

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

These cookies are huge. I used a three tablespoon scoop (a little less than 1/4 cup) and ended up with only 15 cookies. I also had an issues with the chips separating from the batter so while the first batch was in the oven, I stuck the batter in the fridge and that seemed to solve the problem.
