Big Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

User Rating 2 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Delicious chocolate chip cookies recipe is designed by Emeril for kids. These cookies are loaded with semisweet chocolate, milk, chocolate, and white chocolate.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 2-1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, cracked into a small cup or saucer
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped, toasted walnut pieces (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl and set aside.

Place the butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and cream the ingredients on high speed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.

Add the vanilla and egg and mix on medium speed.

Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed just until batter is stiff-don't overdo it!

Turn off the mixer and, using a large spoon or plastic spatula, fold in the chocolate chips and the walnuts, if desired.

Using a tablespoon, scoop about 2 spoonfuls of the dough into a ball and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, keeping the scoops about 2 inches apart. Using your fingers or the back of the spoon, press down on each ball of dough to slightly flatten. You should get about 9 cookies on each sheet.

Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. (Depending on the size of your oven, you may need to do this in batches.)

Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the cookies from the oven and transfer with a plastic turner to wire racks to cool. Repeat with the remaining sheets, if necessary.

Yield: About 27 (4-inch) cookies

Emeril says: "It's important that you try to make the cookies about the same size, so that they're all finished baking at the same time! Be careful handling the hot baking sheets! " --Emeril Lagasse

about the cookies, Member Q.R

I think that the cookies are very nice, just that it is some kind of quite dry but it is still tasty. Why don't you try it yourself?
