Cookie Monster

Martha Stewart's Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

Chocolate chip cookies are a simple and delightful treat, but cookie people take sides. Do you like yours chewy or crispy? Thin & crisp cookies aren't terribly different from soft & chewy cookies- it's all in the recipe measurements!

In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients for your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Here's what's in mine:
  • 2 1/4 cups GF all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
Beat butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla and continue to mix until well combined.  This is the part of the recipe that will differ based on the type of cookie you want:

For Thin & Crisp Cookies
  • 2 1/2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

For Soft & Chewy Cookies
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

For Light & Cakey Cookies
  • 1 3/4 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
Mix in the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Then add the chocolate chips (2 cups), scoop evenly onto a baking sheet, and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
