Martha Stewart's Chocolate Chip Cookies

A few weeks ago Ryan watched the kids so I could finish up a sewing project. I came home late, around 10, and saw fresh baked cookies on the stove. I also noticed a quiet house and a clean kitchen. My man can impress! The cookies he made were DELICIOUS! I asked him where he found the recipe and he said online.

This was the recipe he used. Martha Stewart's chocolate chip cookies. They are probably my favorite and I have sampled a lot of chocolate chip cookies in my day. :) I wanted to share the recipe because I was so impressed with their taste.

Side note: The cookies are really rich. The recipe calls for two cups of semi sweet chocolate chips. I may try less chips next time and even mix in a few milk chocolate chips for a milder taste. I hope you get a chance to try them. They are WONDERFUL!

Here is the link to the recipe.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  2. Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

  1. What a guy!!

    I always use fewer chocolate chips then recipes call for. They all seem to call for so much and it does make them too rich. I may have to give this one a try!
