Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate chip cookie


I have this post on my draft tray for quite some time now. When I made these cookies I was so amazed by their texture and flavor that I Twitted and Instagramed (is that even a word?!!) about them right away, saying that that same week I’ll post the recipe… Well, that was about 8 months ago…

Since then, every time I get together with one particular friend she will hint very unsubtly, that I still haven’t published the recipe. Well, today is the day. I hope you like it; because it is one of the best CCC I’ve ever tried, seriously.

But I’m willing to try other recipes and change this statement. So if you have a personal favorite for this American classic. Please, go ahead and send me your recipe!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips



Preheat the oven to 325 ºF (165 º C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

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 ¼ cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

  1. Big Man discovered CCC in England and now he wants me to make them for him in Spain. As we head back on Saturday, I need to go and find some choc chips to make this gorgeous recipe – where do you buy yours in Spain, El Corte Ingles? Un abrazo

    1. Hola Tanya. Yo las compro en el mercadona. Salen muy bien de precio y la calidad es buena también. Pero si no tienes uno cerca, en el hipercor o el supermercado del corte inglés también encontrarás

  2. you are right. it’s strange that it was put back in the chronological order with the july posts. could it have been ‘pending’ for a july post? i’m sure you’ve compared with the spanish version === some things remain a mystery.

    you could repost it or reblog it to keep the spanish and english versions together…

    i wish i could send the magic carpet for a batch of cookies, but i am in costa rica and a long way from the carpet!!!

    sigh. the cookies look so delicious!

    1. Gracias Lisa 🙂 intentaré solucionarlo porque me gusta que estén juntas las dos versiones.
      Que lo pases muy bien en Costa Rica, cuando vuelvas a casa me mandas la alfombra mágica y yo te la devuelvo cargada de galletas 😉

OK, let's talk
