Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 20 mins
Servings 2 dozen cookies


  • 1 stick (8 tbsp) unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour sifted before measuring
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or chocolate chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 375º F. Grease two cookie sheets and set aside.
  • Using a wooden spoon, combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Mix well, then add the egg and vanilla and stir until completely combined.
  • In a separate small bowl, sift the flour before measuring. Sift it a second time along with the salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Drop small spoonfuls of the batter onto the greased cookie sheets, leaving plenty of room for the cookies to spread. Bake until deep golden brown (not beige!), about 10 minutes. The cookies will be very flat.
  • Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 10 minutes, then remove to a rack. Serve the cookies cold with a glass of milk, or store them in the freezer.
