Best-ever Chocolate Chip Cookies from Delish Insane Sweets

After 28 intense, sugar-filled rounds of testing, Delish believes they finally perfected the chocolate chip cookie. They are chewy, fudgy, filled with two types of chocolate, and rival the size of any bakeries. They are a work of art. Taking inspiration from Grandma's nearly perfect cookie, these have plenty of butter and a bit of love. Delish is certain you'll need no other chocolate chip cookie recipe ever again.
Total Time50 mins
Course: Dessert
Servings: 15 large cookies


  • 1 c. 2 sticks butter
  • 1 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
  • 3 oz. chopped chocolate
  • Flaky sea salt for topping


  • Preheat oven to 325° and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Bring it to a boil and let boil one minute.
  • Place sugars in a large bowl (or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment), then pour hot butter over sugars.
  • Beat with a hand mixer until combined, 1 minute. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and beat until light and creamy, 2 minutes.
  • In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Add to wet ingredients and beat until dry ingredients are almost incorporated with just a few white streaks. Add chocolates and stir until just combined.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, scoop dough (about 3 tablespoons) onto prepared pans about 3” apart and sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Bake until edges are golden and almost set in the middle, 14 to 15 minutes (Cookies will still look slightly underdone).
  • Let cool on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
