Up until about 5 years ago, the only type of homemade chocolate chip cookies we made in our household were Tollhouse Break and Bake. And while the ease and convenience of these cookies was incredibly appealing, I’ve always preferred the taste of chocolate chip cookies made from scratch. Thus started my journey for the perfect cookie recipe. And after years of testing out recipes and forcing my cookies on others for their feedback (how dare I, right?), I can finally say that I’ve found/crafted a chocolate chip cookie recipe to rule them all. So without further ado, here is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!
- 1 cup cold butter
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 & 1/2 cups cake flour
- 1 & 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1 & 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- About 1 & 1/2 cups chopped Rolos (1bag)
- 2 cups chopped walnuts
- Preheat your oven to 410 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Chop up Rolos into roughly pea sized shards
- In a bowl, add the butter, sugars and beat until the mixture is creamy.
- With the mixer still on, add one egg at a time, making sure to beat until fully combined before adding the 2nd egg (about 20 seconds).
- Add in both flours, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and combine with the mixer.
- Pour in the chopped walnuts, chocolate chips and Rolos and mix until combined. Don’t overmix!
- Create balls from the dough (my preference is a little larger than golf ball sized) and place onto a baking tray.
- Bake until golden brown, or 10 to 12 minutes, at 410 degrees.
Enjoy the ooey-gooey goodness!
