I am about to share one of my most beloved recipes.
Shh… come closer, ( beckoning you with my finger) this recipe is top secret!
Today I am giving out my favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies. My favorite thing about this recipe is that it makes a large batch, and you can freeze the cookie dough, so that you can bake fresh cookies whenever you want without having to make them. Just pop them in the oven and within 15 minutes you got yourself a wonderful breakfast, an afternoon pick-me-up, or a midnight snack. 😉
Neighbors will swoon over your amazing mom skills, when all the kids brag about how their mom always has a fresh batch of cookies waiting for them when they get home from school. And if your like me, (and if you are, I am sorry for that) you will bask in all the glory. So keep this secret between us, shall we. No one needs to know that the cookie dough was actually made several weeks earlier. Ba ha ha!
Large Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups butter (4 sticks)
1 ½ c sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 TBSP vanilla
6 c. Flour
1 ½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp soda
4 c. chocolate chips
Directions: Cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. In separate bowl whisk together flour, salt and soda. Mix well. With mixer running, add flour till well combined. Add Chocolate chips and mix well. Drop into rounded tablespoon sized portions on your cookie sheet. I line mine with parchment. Bake 350 for 9-12 min or till done.
If you would like to freeze these, here’s what I do:
Line cookie sheet with wax paper. Pack as many scoops of cookies as you can fit on the sheet. Press lightly with your hand to make the top flat. Freeze for 1-2 hours until solid. Place in gallon freezer bags. If you don’t have room to put a cookie sheet in your freezer, then you can take gallon sized freezer bags and place scoops of cookie dough directly in the bag. Then Freeze. This method may be a little bit more messy, but it’s what I almost always end up doing. To bake from frozen state, just place them on cookie sheet and place in preheated 350 oven. Bake for 12-15 min. That’s it! Enjoy.

They are very good! Only thing is I would cut back 1cup on the chocolate chips & Usually I would add more as I love the extra chocolate !
I am making these for my church …The cookies can only be around 2 to 2 1/2 inches round.. So would you think small cookie scoop?
Yes you can use a small cookie scoop too, just will get smaller cookies.
Hi did I read this right, does this recipe call for 2 tablespoons of vanilla.Is it because it such a big batch?
It’s because vanilla is the gooooood stuff! It’s just yummy. And more is good.
Hi! I made this recipe, but did sprinkles instead of chocolate chips, and i was wondering if it was bad that i added about a half cup of extra flour?? The dough was WAY too sticky.
It does depend on your altitude and humidity, so it’s fine that you added more flour if you needed it.
I had to bake cookies for school bake sale, I’m so grateful I came across your blog. Just finished baking four dozen of the cookies, and the two remaining dozen that was left I frozen them in ziplock bag. These cookies are perfect, chewy , soft,crispy on edges and chocolate completely melts in the middle. I baked them for 15mins, my scoop was bigger than a tablespoon. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, This recipe will be my go to cookies for any bake sale or events.
