Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft and chewy. This recipe makes 6 – 8 cookies. Why make a small batch? Because, if you’re like me and would eat every scrumptious cookie in a large batch, this will help keep that under control!

You can substitute the chocolate chips with chocolate chunks, M&M’s, Reese’s pieces chips, or your favorite cookie ingredient.

How to make Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 C).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Click for parchment paper.

Melt the butter a little bit, for about 30 seconds in the microwave. It won’t be completely melted but will have some liquid.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter with granulated sugar, and brown sugar.

Add in the vanilla and the egg yolk. Continue mixing on low speed until just combined. Don’t over mix.

Then add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until the dough forms.
