Double Chip Cookies

This Tuesday, we sent our daughter off to school for the first time. She entered fourth grade at our local school. Before that, she had been homeschooled for 5 years.

It was an exciting adjustment for all of us. But it was important to me to provide her with all the comforts of home when she stepped off that bus the first day. And what better way to do that than serve her homemade cookies fresh out of the oven?

This recipe is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever, at least as far as our family is concerned. It has more brown sugar than most recipes, which gives the cookies a richer taste that is just irresistible. To up the flavor an extra notch, I put a mixture of both chocolate chips and peanut butter chips in the cookies. You could definitely just use chocolate chip cookies though.


Double Chip Cookies

  • 1 c. butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 c. chocolate chips or 1 c. chocolate chips & 1 c. peanut butter chips

1. Cream together butter or margarine and sugars until fluffy. Add vanilla and egg and beat until well combined.

2. In a separate bowl, add flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk together. Add to mixing bowl and mix just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips or chocolate chips and peanut butter chips.

3. Scoop about 1 rounded tablespoon of dough for each cookie onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 14-17 minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through the baking time.

  1. Looks great! Quick question, though, are these cookies chewy or more of the ‘dunk ’em in your coffee’ kind? I’m looking for the latter.

    Used several of your reciies and I’ve never been disappointed! Breakfast pizza is the BEST!

  2. Good Question.. I would be interested in this answer as well. Although I would be more looking for the crispy on the outside and a bit soft in the middle. 🙂 I also have had wonderful luck with all the recipes I’ve tried on your site as well! My favorite is the Parmesan Chicken Fingers with Garlic Spaghetti. Thanks!!

  3. My family has been putting bugs in my ears about homemade chocolate chip cookies for days now. When this recipe popped up on my blog reader this morning, I knew I couldn’t put them off any longer. The first batch just came out of the oven and they are DELICIOUS!!

    In regards to the texture questions above, mine came out crispy on the outside and soft in the middle when baked for 15 minutes. I suppose if you want them crispy all over for dunking, you could go all the way to 17 minutes.

  4. Sigh. I am glad you had cookies to offer her- I wish I could have some right now.

    (Made your pb chocolate chip muffins today- whoa- they were good.)

  5. These are the best. cookies. ever.


    I make these every week for my middle school kids… 8-9 dozen, in fact, and those kids eat ’em up. They seriously think I’m a genius (of course, I give YOU all the credit!).

    My high school kids that I cook for every week? If I don’t have these or your Peanut-Butter-M&M’s Cookies, they are seriously distraught. I’m SO not exaggerating.

    I pretty much love you for these recipes (although I loved you before, too!).
