Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies (video)
These ultra-easy cookies are soft, chewy and packed with chocolate chips. This recipe requires no chilling or mixers. It’s all made by hand and in one bowl. It’s perfect for when you need cookies in a hurry!
I love a good chocolate chip cookie, but sometimes I can’t be bother to bring out my heavy stand mixer and/or don’t have the time or patience to chill my cookie dough. Sometimes I just want a cookie NOW!
So, when you’re in one of those moods, this recipe will come in handy. It uses melted butter, which is great because how often do you forget to take out your butter ahead of time? You simply whisk your wet ingredients together, add in all your dry ingredients at once, stir until just combined. Then you fold in your chocolate chips, drop the cookie dough onto your baking sheet, bake for 10 minutes and there you have it (that’s basically the whole recipe).
These cookies are soft and chewy with thin crispy edges. They are loaded with chocolate chips and are buttery with warm notes of brown sugar and vanilla.

Ms. Lily. Is it possible for you to make a sundae with brownies and cookies? If you can, please make a recipe about. I will try it.
Hi Chiam, I don’t have anything that specific nor can I find anything online, but here’s a quick and simple brownie sundae recipe and you can just top it with some cookies. https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/supreme-brownie-sundaes/
Hi Ms.Lily, I cooked these in school and my baker teacher loved and me too. Me and my father too. THANK YOU FOR CREATING THIS RECIPE. I’m 11 by the way.
You’re very welcome, Chiam! So glad everyone loved them and I’m so impressed that you’re only 11!
HI LILY why the heck would you put cornstarch in cookies? on top of the baking soda. it gave me diabetes 🙁 so please take this down!
The addition of cornstarch in cookies makes them soft and tender. That’s why it’s also commonly used in shortbread. Try either of these recipes instead if you have a sensitivity to cornstarch:
Just took a batch out of the oven and they are going to be a new favorite and go to recipe for a simple but yummy cookie! Even my husband who professes to not care for chocolate ate 3 before they were completely cooled!! I know they are going to be be a big hit with my grandsons. I don’t know if it’s been mentioned already, but the oven temperature in the recipe and video are different. I went with the video that said 350 degrees. The written recipe says 325. Can you clarify for me?
Thanks again for sharing.
