Tyler Florence’s ‘My Big, Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies’


The small amount of work it takes to make these amazing cookies is nothing compared to the results at the end!

The Food Network’s Tyler Florence makes a traditional cookie batter using softened butter mixed with brown and white sugar, resulting in a fluffy center and crisp chewy edge.

I take them to the next level by using fine quality chocolate such as Ghirardelli premium baking chips!  I’ve used this recipe for years and it remains a crowd pleaser at company potlucks and family gatherings. 😊



This really is the perfect chocolate chip cookie.



My Mom was feeling under the weather so I spent a couple days with her and while she slept I baked her cookies… for those familiar with my blog, you might notice this isn’t my kitchen… 😊



Start by mixing softened butter with white and brown sugar.

I couldn’t find her mixer so I did it by hand… :/



Once fluffy mix in the eggs and vanilla.



Then incorporate the dry mixture.



Mix until just combined.



And lastly fold in the chocolate chips.



I like to chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes before I form the cookies and bake.



Luckily my mom had a cookie scoop to streamline the process.



I under-bake them by a minute or so since they continue to “cook” after pulled out of the oven. By under-baking you’ll achieve a soft chewy center. 🙂



Ghirardelli chocolate is SO DELICIOUS!  These cookies are also SO DELICIOUS!





Hands down, this is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve found.  Enjoy 😊 xoxo
