Our Best Ideas for Chocolate Chip Cookies

When you think of classic cookies, the first thing that comes to mind is likely chocolate chip—and for good reason. They’re rich and indulgent, yet surprisingly easy to make. There are a few different methods to choose from (depending on whether you prefer a cookie that’s crisp, chewy or cakey) but, as long as you’ve mastered a few simple techniques, choose the right butter (yes, it matters!) and measure correctly you can whip a winning batch in no time. Best of all, chocolate chip cookies are infinitely customizable—and these recipes prove it. We’ve got options for all sorts of add-ins like peanut butter, banana, marshmallow and more. You’ll even find special variations like gluten-free—and cookies that go rogue and skip the butter altogether, in favor of olive oil. Craving a cookie, fresh from the oven? With this recipe you can enjoy one, even if you don’t want to bake a big batch. It makes exactly one dozen: enough to satisfy your craving a still share a couple with friends.

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Small changes can make a big difference. We took our basic chocolate chip cookie and made one isolated change at a time. We added, swapped, melted, baked low, baked high and chilled. But mostly we had fun. And with each slight tweak we made a new cookie with a different texture, look and taste from the last. Use our guide as a way to find the perfect cookie for you. No big changes necessary.

The Best Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are inspired by the thin and crispy style made popular by the Long Island bakery Tate's Bake Shop. In our version, we've upped the brown sugar, vanilla and chocolate chips for an even more flavorful and decadent treat.
