Kitchenaid Chocolate Chip Cookies

"One of these days I'm going to lose my Kitchenaid recipe book for good, instead of just misplacing it as I so often do. This is my insurance that my reputation for fantastic chocolate chip cookies remains intact."

Ready In:
1hr 10mins
54-72 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Soften butter in the microwave. I microwave each stick of butter 15 seconds then rotate 180 degrees and microwave for another 15 seconds. Your oven will be different.
  • Place sugars, butter, eggs, and vanilla in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater to mixer.
  • Turn to Speed 2 and mix for 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed 4 and beat another 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl.
  • Sift together baking soda, salt, and flour.
  • Turn to Stir Speed. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture over about 2 minutes.
  • Turn to Speed 2 and mix 30 seconds.
  • Turn to Stir Speed and add chocolate chips, mixing for 15 seconds.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, longer if you prefer crunchy cookies.
  • Let the cookies rest for 1 minute after removing from oven, then remove them and cool on wire racks. Allow the baking sheets to cool about 2 minutes before using them for the next batch.

    Can this cookie dough be frozen for later use?

    These babies turned out fantastic! My husband bought me a stand-up mixer for my bday last year and this was my first time using it. The recipe is simple and the cookies are super yummy. I chilled my dough in the fridge before spooning it onto the cookie sheet and kept it chilled the whole time. I baked them 8 mins and they were just the right bit of crunchy around the edges, but still soft and gooey! I am freezing half the batter for later use. I made these for a friend, but I can't quit eating them!!!!

    I got my Kitchenaid Mixer for Christmas. This is my first of using it tonight. I decided to make these cookies. The ingredients and steps worked perfectly for a first-timer.! The only thing I wasn't very happy with is the oven temperature. I did exactly what it asked me to do. The temperature should of been 325° at 8 to 10 minutes. I burnt my first batch of cookies cuz the temperature. My husband told me it should of been 325°. They turned out great after I turned down the oven. I did made a suggestion to change the temperature for who ever decides to make these cookies. Just a heads up!!

    I was very disappointed in the results. I followed the recipe exactly as written. My cookies came out flat as pancakes. Will go back to my original recipe.

    I don’t think I had soft enough butter when I made these, that’s something that I would change. They were pretty good. I don’t think my mixer could handle how thick these were to mix (then again might of just been the butter) Definitely would try them again, super simple to make.

    Instead of 12 oz choc chips I put in 9 oz and added chopped walnuts, pepitas, and instant oats to bring it to 12oz. The result was fantastic! Also, FYI, I made these with my handmixer this time as a test and all was well. FYI, I have made these cookies on 3 different continents and they turn out different every time. some more than others! The one constant is that they are always, always delish. Humidity, altitude, flour, heat in your kitchen/house, oven, all play a part!

    I did find the bottoms burned easily on a normal rectangular cookie sheet. I baked the next several batches on a round pizza pan(as pictured) and they turned out wonderful! I’m not sure if this is because the pizza pan is a bit thicker perhaps? Thank you!!!

    I added about 1/4 more butter. They turned out wonderful!

    Add candies instead of chocolate chips
