Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Author: Living the Gourmet
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 dozen cookies 1x


Units Scale
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup toasted sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Set aside.
  • In the bowl of your mix master, beat butter, shortening, sugars, egg and vanilla, until whipped.
  • Add salt, flours, baking soda, and baking powder.  Beat on low until a sticky dough comes together.  Add the chocolate chips and mix on low until incorporated.
  • Spoon heaping tablespoons worth of cooking dough on each sheet, leaving enough room for the cookies to expand.  I scooped them out in four rows of three cookies.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until just slightly golden.   Remove from the oven and leave to rest on the cookie sheets for about half a minute before carefully transferring to a wire rack.  Let cool before serving.  Enjoy!


Store cookies in an airtight container lined with a paper towel to keep the cookies soft and fresh longer.  Cookies will keep for up to 5 days.
