It’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie day so we’re here to share one of our favorite chocolate chip recipes from See’s Candies.

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Bake Time: 10-11 Minutes


  • ½ cup + 3 tbsp unsalted butter, cold & divided
  • 1 ¾ cups + 2 tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 oz See’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Melt 3 tbsp of butter in saucepan over medium heat about 5 minutes, until bubbling and foaming. Once butter is amber color, transfer to a small bowl. Scrape the browned bits from the sauces pan into the bowl, too. Add 1 tsp cold water, and stir. Place bowl in freezer for 15 minutes to cool while you prepare other ingredients.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside until step 7.
  4. Place cold stick of butter and white sugar in mixer with paddle attachment. Start on low and mix for a few minutes, turning up the mixer to medium speed as butter softens and mixture becomes creamy.
  5. Remove cooled butter mixture from freezer and add brown sugar, whisking until combined (clumps together).
  6. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl and paddle, then add egg, vanilla and mixture of buttery brown sugar from step 5. Mix for about a minute until completely combines.
  7. Remove bowl from stand and pour in flour mixture. Stir with wooden spoon until flour incorporates and forms into dough. Stir in See’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. Now you’re ready to bake!
  8. Place rounded tablespoons of dough two inches apart on parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake in preheated oven 10-11 minutes or until edges are browned and centers no longer shiny. Let sit on cookie sheet for one minute then move to cooling racks.
