Best, Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This is a recipe that I found on, and it really does live up to it's name. When paired with Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla, you will never go back to the recipe on the back of the bag of chocolate chips!

Best, Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie!

3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted (yes.. melt it into liquid)
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla - yes.. a whole TABLESPOON!
1 egg
1 egg yolk

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper (my preferred method).

Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt - set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well well blended. Beat in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla until light and creamy. Mix in the dry ingredients until just blended. If your mixture is thin looking, add another 1/4 cup flour. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand - using a wooden spoon.. or other heavy spoon.

Roll cookies into 2" balls and place 2" apart on your cookie sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes (mine took exactly 15 mins.).

Cool on wire rack... leave the kitchen while they are cooling, or you won't have any to share :)


Yield: 2-3 dozen, depending on size
