Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day.


The chocolate chip cookie is something to celebrate. I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie. And, if your chocolate chip cookie happens to be hot out of the oven and homemade -all the better.

Most of us have our “go to”  chocolate chip cookie recipe BUT let’s face it, we’re always on the lookout for the absolute BEST  version.

Years ago, I came across a recipe in my local newspaper  ( The St. Louis Post Dispatch) posted in the FOOD section and provided by a reader in the area.  Pre Google and Pinterest, I clipped this little ditty out of the paper and have kept it in my recipe box ever since. (Yes, I STILL have a recipe box. No judging). Tee he.  I’m here to tell you that this little baby is THE ABSOLUTE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE RECIPE EVER! There-I said it! I’m posting it on this National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day– so you too can give it and go and let me know, if you feel the same after baking a batch or two or ten. I’ve given this recipe to many a friend and they all stand by it today. I hope you enjoy and have a fabulous National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. If it’s to late to bake today…remember there’s always tomorrow- because every day  is a good day, to bake and eat a  homemade chocolate chip cookie.

The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup salted butter, slightly melted
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (don’t ask why-just put it in-promise this is a winner)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • Coarse sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking soda and the salt: Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl beat together the butter, sugars, vanilla extract and the vinegar until smooth. Beat in the egg just until combined.
  4. Mix the flour mixture into the wet mixture just until combined. Stir in the chips.
  5. Using a large cookie scoop (about 2 rounded tablespoons) drop about 3 inches apart onto cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, they will look light brown around the edges and will look underdone in the center. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle each cookie with a little sea salt. Allow to sit on the sheet for 10 minutes before moving to a rack to cool.
