Our Grandma's Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes



  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs whole milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375 F.

Whisk to combine egg, milk, and vanilla. Set aside and let warm to room temperature.

Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.

Cream together butter and sugars on a medium-high speed until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Reduce speed and slowly add egg mixture. Gradually increase the speed and mix until well combined.

Slowly add the flour mixture, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary, until combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto greased or parchment lined pans. Leave at least 2 inches between cookies.

Bake until edges are beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on pan for 1-2 minutes before transferring to a wire sheet to cool.


You can gussy these up with a cup of chopped nuts, or by mixing up the type of chocolate or extract you use.
