This recipe has been updated from when I first published it. I have added new photos and a video! I changed the granulated sugar I initially used for light brown sugar. You could still use granulated sugar - I used brown sugar for the hint of brown color it gives to the cookies which I love. Every other ingredient remains the same. I have also rewritten portions of the recipe for clarity. Hope you continue to enjoy this recipe!
These cookies live up to their name. They are really the easiest chocolate chip cookies! One bowl, simple ingredients and ready in no time. Enjoy!
- ½ cup unsalted butter (8 tablespoons) at room temperature
- ⅓ cup light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon liquid whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 1 cup flour (125g)
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- ⅓ cup chocolate chips (see note 1)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, beat together butter and sugar using a hand mixer until well incorporated. Add the milk, egg and vanilla extract then beat together until just combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl using a spatula.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Mix together to form a dough. Scoop dough using a medium cookie scoop and place on the prepared baking sheet. Be sure to leave a one to two inch room between the cookies to give them room to spread.
Press more chocolate chips onto the scoops of cookie dough.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for five minutes then place them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely.
1. You could replace chocolate chips with the same quantity of chocolate bars in this recipe. Roughly chop the bars and add to your cookie dough.
2. Note that the dough in this recipe is soft so you must use a tool (a cookie scoop or tablespoon) to scoop the dough and place on the cookie tray.
3. Store cookies in an airtight container.
4. You could add more chocolate chips to this recipe if you prefer it that way!
