Background and History

Chocolate chip cookies are an iconic treat in American baking, tracing back to the 1930s when Ruth Wakefield, owner of the Toll House Inn, accidentally created them by adding chopped chocolate to cookie dough. Since then, these cookies have become a staple in households worldwide, cherished for their irresistible combination of sweet chocolate and buttery dough.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  • Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 9 to 11 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
