Recipe: Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Like so many people out there, I am on a quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. And by perfect I mean chewy, chock-full of chocolate chips, and soft. Unfortunately, I’ve had some bad starts before Iย finally discovered the secret to the perfect chocolate chip cookie: slightly underbaking them.

I know, it sounds too easy to be true, right? But by taking them out of the oven a minute or two early will give you those chewy cookies, instead of sort of soft cookies with hard bottoms.

Anywho, here’s the recipe. Enjoy!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Beat butter and sugar. Add eggs.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop out and drop onto a cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown and hold their shape.

And that’s it! I’m a big fan of chewy cookies, rather than crunchy ones, and have been trying to get a good recipe for chewy cookies for the longest time. I think I’ve finally found it! Use your judgement on when to take them out. Depending on the tray you’re using, the time will vary. But I veer towards slightly undercooked just so I can get that yummy bakery taste. ๐Ÿ™‚
