Scott's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is my chocolate chip cookie recipe adapted from several of my favorite cookie recipes over several years.

chocolate chip cookies on marble counter top



  • 3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt + extra pinch for tops of finished cookies!
  • 1 1/4 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Mixture of Semi-sweet and Milk Chocolate roughly chopped


  • 1 tbsp Heavy Cream or your milk of choice! (ideally with a high fat content)
  • 1 Egg large
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup soft or melted Unsalted Butter

Make The Dough

  1. Mix together all the wet ingredients until well combined.
  2. Then add the brown and white sugars to the wet ingredients and mix.
  3. Then add all of the remaining dry ingredients except for the flour and chocolate chips.
  4. After the dry ingredients have been combined, mix in the flour 1/4 cup at a time.
  5. Mix in chocolate chips last.
  6. Chill dough in refrigerator.

Chill The Dough

It very important to chill the dough in the fridge, in an air-tight container, for at least 4 hours, but it is best to chill overnight.

Bake The Dough

Scoop the dough into 1.5in balls and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350°F oven for 10 minutes which will make a slightly under-baked cookie with a gooey center.

Quickly sprinkle the tops with a little bit of salt of your choice as soon as you pull them out of the oven.

Let cookies cool down on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing them from the sheet.
