  • Hand mixer or stand mixer with paddle attachment
  • Measuring spoons
  • Scale or measuring cups
  • Mixing bowls
  • Sifter


  • cups all-purpose flour heat treated
  • cup granulated sugar
  • cup light or dark brown sugar packed
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter softened
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-2½ tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Heat treat the flour by either baking it in the oven at 350°F for about 6 minutes, or in a bowl in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Be sure to stir it and check it with a thermometer to make sure it reaches 160°F. Let it cool.
  • Cream together the sugars, butter, vanilla extract and milk really well (2-3 minutes).
  • Gently break up the flour using the back of a spoon and sift it into the dough mixture (discard any large clumps). Mix it in along with the salt until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and enjoy!



On January 11th, 2022, this recipe was updated with new measurements for the brown sugar and granulated sugar. If you prefer the original recipe (published November 30th, 2020), use ½ cup of each of those ingredients.
Heat treating the flour is very important - do not skip this step. Flour is raw so it needs to be heated to 160°F to kill any potentially harmful bacteria it may contain.
Store cookie dough in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for 1 month. Let it soften at room temperature for at least 10 minutes before enjoying.
You can use any type of chocolate chips that you'd like, or replace them with your favorite candies.
