Baking the perfect chocolate chip cookie is a science, and everyone has their own opinion as to what a "perfect" cookie is. For us at Slumlove, it's all about thick, soft cookies loaded with chocolate chips. We've poured over recipe books + blogs seeking inspiration + advice for our dream cookie. We think Santa will be pleased with what he leave him this year. 


14 tablespoons unsalted, softened (not melted) butter

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups flour (add a tablespoon or two more for extra thick cookies)

1 teaspoon fresh baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips

Combine softened butter and both sugars in a large mixing bowl. Mix until fluffy. Add eggs + vanilla and continue to mix until well combined. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until everything is combined, and add chocolate chips. Mix until combined, but don't over mix. Bake at 350 degrees until cookies are golden brown on top! 

Merry Christmas, y'all!
