Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies. If you want to freeze some of the dough for later, place the dough balls (see Step 8) in a zip-lock bag or airtight container and freeze for later! Let the dough balls sit out for 30 minutes at room temperature before baking. If you want to bake from frozen dough, add 3-5 minutes of baking time. Check the cookies frequently so as to not over bake. They will look a little less set than normal, but they will firm up as they cool!


  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or shortening
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 (12 ounce) package chocolate chips (2 cups) or chocolate chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a small mixing bowl until well blended. Set aside.
  3. Melt butter (and shortening, if using). Mix together butter and oil.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, vanilla, and salt until combined. Add in butter mixture. Using a standing or hand mixer, blend together until well combined.
  5. Add in eggs, one at a time. Mix well between each egg until the mixture creams.
  6. Add in flour, no more than 1/2 cup at a time, waiting at least 30 second between each time.
  7. For gooey cookies, refrigerate dough for 1 hour. For firmer cookies, refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  8. Scoop out a heaping, rounded tablespoon of dough. Gently roll the dough into a ball. Be careful not to pack the dough down. Place the cookie dough ball onto a greased baking sheet.
  9. Repeat step 8, placing dough balls at least 1 1/2 inches apart.
  10. Bake cookies for 10-13 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Cookies will not look set in the center, but are done. Do not overbake.
  11. Allow cookies to cool for 1-2 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack.

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
