The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Hi everyone!

For the first time on Fabulously Floridian, I’ll be sharing you guys one of my all time favorite recipes. I may not be the best cook, but baking is something I can totally do! (And enjoy doing!) I usually whip up a batch of these cookies once a week as a sweet treat for my friends and family, not to mention they are a ginormous success!

Recently I have been getting request from my friends about the recipe, I thought to myself “Why not just make a post out of it?” (Actually, one of my best friend Mary planted this idea in my mind.) I swear by this recipe, never will you ever taste such delicious, soft chocolate chip cookies that you’ve made! Hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do! Love to know what you guys think, feel free to leave a comment below!



(Recipe & Instructions credit of

  • 8 tablespoons of salted butter
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ cups all purpose
  • flour ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Microwave the butter for about 40 seconds to just barely melt it. It shouldn't be hot - but it should be almost entirely in liquid form.
  2. Using a stand mixer or electric beaters, beat the butter with the sugars until creamy. Add the vanilla and the egg; beat on low speed until just incorporated - 10-15 seconds or so (if you beat the egg for too long, the cookies will be stiff).
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until crumbles form. Use your hands to press the crumbles together into a dough. It should form one large ball that is easy to handle (right at the stage between "wet" dough and "dry" dough). Add the chocolate chips and incorporate with your hands.
  4. Roll the dough into 12 large balls (or 9 for HUGELY awesome cookies) and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes until the cookies look puffy and dry and just barely golden.Warning, friends: DO NOT OVERBAKE. This advice is probably written on every cookie recipe everywhere, but this is essential for keeping the cookies soft. Take them out even if they look like they're not done yet (see picture in the post). They'll be pale and puffy.
  5. Let them cool on the pan for a good 30 minutes or so (I mean, okay, eat four or five but then let the rest of them cool). They will sink down and turn into these dense, buttery, soft cookies that are the best in all the land. These should stay soft for many days if kept in an airtight container. I also like to freeze them.
