Why You'll Love This Thick Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
- The Real Thing - Sometimes you need a cookie that has no substitutes and tastes just like something your grandma would make!
- Easy to Cook - Everyone has 20 minutes in their day to whip these up! It's also fun to make with the kiddos.
How to Make The Best Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick spray. Prepare your ingredients.
Next, cream together the melted butter (slightly melted) and brown sugar and turbinado sugar until well blended.
Next beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk.
Then, in a separate mixing bowl, combine the flour baking powder and salt.
Start to fold the flour mixture into the sugar mixture until thoroughly combined.
Stir in chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon and then add in the walnuts. Stir these ingredients until just blended.
Now for the fun part! Scoop into even sized balls and place on prepared cookie sheets. If you want them extra large and thick I would suggest weighing them to about 6 oz. each. Don't worry about a perfect mound shape for these!
Don't skip this part! Refrigerate dough for 2 hours or freeze for 90 minutes. It's very important not to skip this part because if you do you won't get the thick cookie effect and instead it will spread and be flat.
Finally, bake for 9-12 minutes for medium sized cookies or 11-13 minutes for larger cookies. I like to bake them until edges are lightly toasted. Place on wire racks to cool completely or serve warm!
- Don't forget to chill or freeze your dough!
- Why chill your cookie dough?
- The fat in the cookies are solidified when you chill cookie dough. By doing this, it prevents the spread of the cookie. Basically the fat in the chilled cookie dough takes longer to melt than room temperature fat.
- It affects the flavor! Chilling allows it to create a concentrated flavor. So so good!
- Can you freeze these?
- Yes! Dough can be frozen into portions ahead of time for 2 months. Just place into oven at 350 degrees F and bake like normal. Store in an airtight container on counter for a 7-10 days.
- How long will it keep in the fridge?
- You can happily keep them in the fridge for 3 days. But I personally like to leave them out. They'll be eaten anyway in no time!
- Can I use alternative flours?
- I don't suggest it. It will change the texture and cause dryness. If you prefer flourless cookies try my Flourless Cookies.

Can I add Oatmeal & Pecans to this recipe? Do I change anything?
Charisse Yu says
Pecans should be fine, but oatmeal needs to be recipe tested!
Shelli Cater says
I add 3/4 cup of quick oats to mine and 1/2 cup of pecans.
I love this recipe! I've done them three times already gets better every time !
I was wondering, is there a way to make this as chocolate chocolate chip cookies? I don't know how much cocoa I should add, and if I should switch anything in order to do that
Trying to make this right now. PUt it in the fridge for 1 hour and it's a tad bit too hard/cold that I keep having to increase the bake time! Argh! 10 minutes is now 16 and going...
