Do not over bake

When you remove the cookies from the oven they will still look doughy. THIS is the secret that makes these cookies so absolutely amazing! Please, I beg you, do NOT over bake!

Convection oven

Decrease baking temperature by 25 degrees if using a convection oven.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Butter. I use salted butter, but unsalted butter would also be great. I just recommend tasting the dough to ensure that it’s salted to your liking.
  • White Sugar.  You can use granulated white sugar or organic cane sugar.
  • Brown sugar. I use light brown sugar in this recipe for the best results.
  • Flour. I recommend using an unbleached, all-purpose flour to make these chocolate chip cookies. Many readers have used gluten-free all-purpose flour with excellent results.
  • Sea Salt. I exclusively bake and cook with pure, fine sea salt. Sea salt is different than table salt (that is iodized), so if you use salt other than sea salt I recommend testing the recipe first with ½ tsp and then adjusting to your taste.
  • Chocolate Chips. As you can see from the photos, sometimes I use chocolate chunks, chopped chocolate, or chocolate chips. It doesn’t matter what you use, as long as you use 2 cups.

How to freeze chocolate chip cookie dough

Portion dough, roll into balls and freeze in a single layer in an airtight container for up to 2 months.

Note on the amount of flour in grams – the traditional conversion from cups to grams is 120 g all-purpose flour in 1 cup, which would mean this recipe needs 360 g flour. When I weigh the flour I use to make the perfect cookies it comes out to be 430 to 450 g depending on the size of my eggs. I suggest starting with 360 and increasing as necessary. The dough should not be wet or sticky but it also should not be dry or crumbly.
