Worst Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Course Dessert


  • 2 Mixing bowls
  • Spatula
  • Cookie sheets
  • Parchment paper


  • 1 cup Unsalted butter, melted and then cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups Tightly-packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 Large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Maple syrup
  • 3 1/4 cups All-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 cups Chocolate chips (1 cup regular semi-sweet chips and 1 cup mini semi-sweet chips recommended)


  • Mix melted butter and sugars together in a large bowl
  • Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition until well-combined
  • Add maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir
  • In the second bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
  • Gradually add the bowl of dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well with a spatula until completely combined
  • Add chocolate chips and mix in. (Optional: reserve ¼ cup of the regular chocolate chips for pressing into the cookies once baked)
  • Cover the dough with cling wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 175°F while the dough chills
  • Line cookie sheets with parchment paper
  • For large cookies, scoop 2 tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into balls
  • Place balls on a lined cookie sheet, 2 inches apart to allow room for spreading (Keep the unbaked dough in the fridge while the first batch is baking)
  • Flatten the balls slightly with the back of a spoon
  • Bake for 13 minutes, until the edges are golden brown. (If you prefer to make smaller cookies, shorten the baking time accordingly)
  • Optional step: once the cookies are out of the oven, press a few chocolate chips into the top of each cookie while the cookies are still warm
  • Allow cookies to cool completely on the tray
