Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

    Advertisement
  • In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition until combined; mix in vanilla.

  • With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture; mix until just incorporated. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir in chocolate chips.

  • Drop 1/4-cup mounds of dough onto ungreased baking sheets, at least 4 inches apart and away from edges of pan. (You will fit about 4 cookies to a sheet; bake in 2 batches, using 2 baking sheets per batch.) Bake until golden, 15 to 18 minutes, rotating sheets front to back and from top to bottom of oven halfway through.

  • Cool 1 to 2 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes

For each cookie, use a 1/4-cup measuring cup to scoop out and level dough before dropping onto baking sheet. Store in an airtight container up to 2 days.

These cookies are great, I substituted butter with Margarine because I didn't have any butter on hand and they turned out perfect - not sure why everyone in the comments is so divided on this recipe.

I have never used Martha Stewart recipes before. I found out she had this 30 things we should know how to do and I think the world of you Martha Stewart! Each one of these ideas are so beautifully laid out. Only more recently I noticed the directions have become slim to none. However, the recipes are still there. I made these about 15 years ago, in my 20's. And I have tried some seriously good cookies in my life, Davids to name one. These cookies were absolutely the best, I agree with Meli. So delicious. Thanks for brightening up my life. By the way I'd love the instructions on for the other 29 things like tying a tie etc. I tried to hold on to the print out I made but lost track of it through some moves (changing location). Thanks for all your bright ideas Martha Stewart and the wonderful way you share them with the world. On another note, I read an article about you recently and felt the pain you suffered in your life for having been through the system. I hope your life is going well and I wish you all the success in the world. Though I am sure you need none as you are still providing people with such awesome comfort with all your fantastic choices and wonderful suggestions.

Best cookie recipe ever! I baked these at 375° for 16 minutes and they are perfect. My husband loves them and has requested these multiple times. Those of you who couldn’t make it work, obviously can’t bake or follow directions... Thank you Martha ♥️

I didn't think it was possible, but I found a chocolate chip cookie I don't like. Don't make these, these are gross. Last time I get burned by a Martha Stewart recipe that lost something between her kitchen and mine. Go with the one on your bag of chips.

Ok so lots of people have been saying that this recipe is crappy and I'm here to tell you guys that this is not true because I'm a 13 year old girl chef and tonight I made these cookies for 13 people and they are absolutely amazing! The only thing that I would change would be cooking the cookies for about 12 minutes. The cookies and nice and cooked on the inside and very crispy on the outside. It also tast amazing with vanilla ice cream atop. That's what I did.

DON'T MAKE THESE!!! They don't work. And to the person that said other cookies turn out because they contain corn syrup and other crap, clearly you are not a baker. I've got a chocolate chip cookie recipe that is all the same ingredients and ten times better than these crappy cookies! I'm surprised by Martha. I've tried them 3 different times, thinking maybe it was my oven, even chilling the dough. Nothing has worked. Don't waste your time or money on this one!!

The secrets to the pale, puffy, chewy cookies everyone seems to be after here are things like crisco and corn syrup. These are the type of cookie you get without using those sorts of thing. That said, the cooking time is too long. I used salted butter, chilled the dough slightly, then baked on parchment in a convection oven at about 350 for about 10 minutes with good results (albeit still not looking like the picture above). They look dark and wrinkly and a bit unappealing but taste wonderful!

I am a man and I don't really do that much baking. My family has been baking these for years. They turn out great and people usually love them! For those of you having issues 1) You can't complain about it being greasy! It has a high butter and sugar content that is part of what makes it chewy. 2) They are thin so you have to watch them or they will burn. Disregard the cooking time and just watch the cookies. 3) Don't make them too big!If you do the edges will burn and the centers will stay raw

I'm clearly the only one who felt this way, but I make this recipe ALL the time. I have for years. And every time I make it for someone new, they rave and ask me for the recipe (which is amusing since it's so basic). Not sure why mine don't have issues. I do get the butter and eggs to room temp first. And I probably don't end up cooking them as long as they say - I always take about five minutes off and then watch them. But, then again, I love Toll House cookies, too.

I just made these cookies and they turned out okay. Not fantastic, but not terrible. To solve the problem with the burning edges, or dark brown color, just bake them at 350 with the convection on. That helped my cookies to turn out better and not overly brown.

My cookies flattened out to look like the picture - for those of you complaining about flat cookies, I think having room-temp. butter is the key to not having too-thin cookies. Having said that, this recipe had problems: 1 Waaaay too greasy, bordering on "ew" 2 15 minutes nearly burned mine - had to drop the next batch down to 13 min 3 They take forever to make because there are so few on a sheet at a time, I had to stay up way later than I wanted 4 they barely make 12 per batch, not 16

It might be better to not cook as long - more around 12-13 minutes and when they are a little brown on the bottom of the cookie, take them out and let them cool...they will cook a bit longer while resting outside the oven.

The proportions of granulated and brown sugar and the baking soda throw this recipe off with such unpleasant results. Run to your nearest bookstore for "got milk? the cookie book" by Peggy Cullen. You'll see the difference in each of the recipe variations for the Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie, Thin and Chewey CCCs, Thick and Chewey CCCs and Crisp and Crunchy CCCs. Something for everyone's liking. Tried them all - the cookie results are amazing!

I use all butter to make similar cookies. 1 C butter, softened. Beat until fluffy with 1 C sugar and 1 C brown sugar. Add 2 large eggs, 1.5 t vanila. In a separate bowl, sift together 1.5 C flour, 1 t salt, 1 t baking soda, 1 t baking powder. Mix dry ingredients into wet. Add 3 C oats and 1 bag chips or chunks. Batter will be thick. Chill 30 minutes and then scoop onto ungreased (or parchment covered) cookie sheet. Bake @350 for 8-10 minutes for soft, chewy cookies; 10-12 for crisp cookies.

Unlike a previous comment, all butter in a recipe does NOT equal flat buttery cookies. Not mixing the dough enough and not adding the proper amount of flour equals flat buttery cookies. If you whip the butter with the eggs until it's light and fluffy and THEN add the remaining ingredients, you'll make FANTASTIC cookies. Make sure you measure the flour properly and don't just dump a bunch in.

I found a great recipe on the food network with Alton Brown. I think it's called the chewy or puffy chocolate chip cookie. He has two cookie recipes, and I make the one that calls for bread flour and butter, not the recipe that calls for shortening. It's wonderful. I've made it six times in the last month, and my family loves it. I have to double the recipe because I make jumbo cookies and they get gobbled up.

All butter in a chocolate chip recipe equals a flat buttery cookie. See Alton Brown's Chocolate Chip Cookie show/recipes on the Food Network. He explains how the different shortenings effect the cookies outcome. As I bake about 100 dozen cookies at Christmas time I found the information very valuable an transferable to other recipes.

I always make these, and often substitute white chocolate chips and add macadamia nuts to the mix. Instead of a 1/4 cup measuring spoon, I use my standard icecream scoop, leveled flat. I leave them mounded on the sheet and they ooze to absolutely perfect diameter and thickness for a delicious cookie. Keep them covered, air tight, as soon as they are cool to ensure they don't dry out. I also bake on a slightly cooler temp (350) and remove earlier, as soon as they appear done. Perfect!

I'm actually shocked at the amount of negative comments about these cookies. I get rave reviews about these cookies every time I make them and they're the only one's I'll make. Rather than making them giant - I just make them normal size - make sure the dough is not flattened and bake them for about 7 minutes. They're ooey gooey and oh so delicious. I even put spoonfuls of the dough on a cookie sheet and freeze them so I can make an individual cookie any time I want.

I have discovered that when measuring out the flour, don't be careful. You can actually dip into the flour with your measuring cup and scoop it out then level it off. Do not sift or spoon into measuring cup. You don't want it packed, but this usually works well with most choc. chip cookie recipes. It produces a cookie that doesn't spread.

I have not tried this recipe, but when my cookies spread too much and become flat I refridgerate the dough for about an hour first, I also slightly flatten the mounds of dough which tends to make a better shaped cookie, less flat, even though it seems the opposite would be true.

I was about to give this a try, then I read all these comments. Doesn't sound too promising. Looking at the recipe makes me think 2 sticks butter to 2 cups flour might be a bit too much. Probably does need more flour. My favorite oatmeal cookie recipe uses 1 cup butter, 2 flour PLUS 2 1/2 cups of oatmeal..... Also why baking soda (seems like a lot too) and not baking powder?
