Thank you for joining us on Day 4 of our 12 Days of Christmas Cookies Countdown.

Today we have an added celebration because we also just celebrated National Cookie Dayearlier this week and I thought today’s recipe should  celebrate with America’s Number One Voted Favorite ~The Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Today’s recipe comes courtesy of ELIZABETHBH from allrecipes.com who calls this her “Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie, the kind you would see at your specialty shops and bakeries, these cookies are the pinnacle of perfection!” And I couldn’t agree more.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
