How to Make Your Own Chocolate Chip Cookies


Chocolate chip cookies are a classic American treat that can be found in nearly every home. They are simple to make and can be customized to your own personal taste. This guide will show you how to make your own chocolate chip cookies from scratch.


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, mixing until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake until cookies are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes; transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

These are the basic ingredients and directions for making your own chocolate chip cookies. Now, let’s take a look at some ways you can customize your cookies.

Try using different types of chocolate chips, such as milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate. You can also add in chopped nuts, raisins, or dried fruit. For a fun twist, try using peanut butter or mint chocolate chips.

If you want to get really creative, you can even make your own chocolate chips! To do this, simply melt chocolate chips and a little bit of oil in a microwave-safe bowl or in a saucepan set over low heat. Once the chocolate is melted, use a spoon to drop it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow the chocolate to cool and harden, then use a knife to chop it into chip-sized pieces.

Now that you know how to make your own chocolate chip cookies, get creative and have fun!
