I believe that I have finally discovered the secret, elusive, soft and chewy, perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Seriously.

Classic Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have tried many, many different chocolate chip cookie recipes in my lifetime and each one was never really that “right” cookie. I really enjoy soft and chewy cookies… not the thin, crispy ones.

Unfortunately, with all the cookies recipes I’ve tried there was always something just off about them. They were either soft in the middle and crispy on the outside, or vice versa, or completely crispy.

None of which made me very happy.

The Brown Sugar Beer Cookies here were an inspiration because they were the first cookie that I made that were soft and chewy throughout. And I really wanted to recreate that into a classic chocolate chip cookie.

My funfetti pudding cookies and also chocolate chip cheesecake cookies were also perfectly chewy and soft but weren’t quite “classic” enough for me.

So I decided to try my own hand at developing a recipe for the perfect chocolate chip cookie… and after quite a few trial and errors in the kitchen, I finally got it right.

These cookies are soft and chewy throughout and stay that way for almost up to a week in an airtight container. They may last longer than that, but I really wouldn’t know because cookies don’t last too long in our house. ha!

If you don’t like soft cookies, I give you permission to click away and find another recipe that you will love. But if you have been on the hunt for a perfect cookie, like me, then go no further and make this recipe today! I promise you will not be disappointed.
