Chocolate chip cookies are the superior cookie in my humble opinion. You just can’t beat a good chocolate chip cookie! In honor of national chocolate chip cookie day I am sharing this awesome triple chocolate chip cookie recipe. I prefer chewy cookies and that is exactly what this recipe this recipe yields.

This recipe follows a pretty standard cookie recipe with a creamed butter and sugar base.

  • Butter
  • Light brown sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla extract
  • All purpose flour
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Milk chocolate chips
  • White chocolate chips
  • Bittersweet chocolate chips

If you do not have whole wheat flour on hand it can easily be substituted with more all purpose flour. I like the add texture and earthy flavor the whole wheat flavor adds to these cookies however. Similarly if you don’t have all three of the chocolate chip you can always substitute for more of one of the other kinds, just be sure there is a total of 240 grams of chocolate chips.

Making the dough

The creaming process is the MOST important part of making these triple chocolate chip cookies. The butter and sugar ratio is a bit higher than most cookies so it is important that they are very well combined to stop the cookies over spreading. The creaming process will take around 10 minutes to be done correctly. Start with room temperature butter and the sugars and cream for 2-3 minutes. Then scrape down the bowl with a spatula and add the egg and vanilla. Cream for a further 7-8 minutes, scraping the bowl at least once during the process. The mixture should be uniform, smooth and very pale in color. If you can see any larger pieces of the butter, sugar or egg that have not come together scrape down the bowl and continue beating for another 2 minutes or so until uniform.

Next you will want to mix in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Be careful not to over mix the mixture as you will end up with dense, tough cookies. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. This cookie dough does need to be chilled prior to baking. I like to scoop my dough balls prior to chilling them as it is softer and easier to work with at this stage. The dough should chill for at least an hour or up to five days.
