BIG BATCH Six Degrees of Separation/New York Times/Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies

21 Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes to Make for National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!

These are the chocolate chip cookies I make when I have time and have planned ahead (there's a 36-hour resting period involved). Big, beautiful cookies with crispy edges and soft middles. They're the cookies you'd expect from a great bakery - and you can make them at home. You'll be so, so happy you did!


Classic Chocolate Chip Blondies

21 Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes to Make for National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!

Some days, you want the flavor of chocolate chip cookies, but you want it in blondie form. These blondies, or chocolate chip cookie bars, are straight-up perfection. I make - and eat - them often.


Triple Threat Cookies

This is one of the most popular recipes on the blog! Triple threat cookies contain chocolate chips, mini m&ms, and coconut. They're actually a result of the grocery store being out of a different ingredient...and boy, did that turn out to be kismet! 


Chocolate Cherry Almond Butter Breakfast Cookies

Chocolate Cherry Almond Butter Breakfast Cookies

I, for one, don't think a person needs an excuse to eat chocolate in the morning. BUT, if you're looking for an excuse, bake up these breakfast cookies and jump out of bed before your alarm rings in the morning. Chock full of oats, whole wheat flour, almond butter, and, yes, chocolate. These will get you through a breakfast rut.


Whole-Wheat, Whole-Grain Morning Monster Cookies

Whole-Wheat, Whole-Grain Morning Monster Cookies

Continuing on with the "cookies for breakfast" motif, I bring you Morning Monster Cookies. Again, you'll find them filled with oats and whole wheat, but this version has peanut butter and some butterscotch chip to play with the chocolate chips. Just the ticket after a morning run or workout...or as a dash-out-the-door-to-school, eat-in-the-car breakfast.


Copycat Doubletree Hotel Cookies

Copycat Doubletree Hotel Cookies

In my mind, you can't discuss chocolate chip cookies without mentioning the Doubletree Hotel Cookies. When we're travel planning, there's a reason I search out Doubletree Hotels in the area - and it isn't for the crisp hotel sheets. There is nothing better than checking into your hotel and being greeted with a warm chocolate chip cookie. 


OFFICIAL Doubletree Hotel Cookies

If there's anything good that came out of 2020, it's that Doubletree Hotels released their "official" chocolate chip cookie recipe for all of us to make at home. You know I tried it...and shared the results on the blog. 


The Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

Speaking of famous cookie recipes, have you ever heard the story of the Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookie? Well, I tried them. They're delish, and while not my favorite chocolate chip cookie, I think they're a "must-make" at least once just to tell the story.


Chocolate Almond Surprise Cookies

These diminutive cuties are LITERALLY chocolate two-chip cookies as each one contains two bittersweet chocolate chips in the center. The almond cookie dough is stellar, and those chips inside make these such special little treats.


Espresso Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Espresso Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Some cookies just make you feel grown-up - biscotti definitely fits into that category. Eat them plain, or dip them in your morning latte. I developed this recipe for The Pioneer Woman Food & Friends. you'll get the recipe + all of the details on how to make any flavor biscotti at home

German Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

A while back, Mr. E and I visited the cute little town of Fredericksburg, Texas. It's adorable - lots of history, and shopping, and wine...and oh...a cute little German bakery right in the center of town. They offered a chocolate chip cookie like I'd never seen. It was a soft, puffy sugar cookie topped with tons of mini chocolate chips and a glaze. Of course, I had to recreate the cookie when we got home. These are so good! 


Spicy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Spicy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies with a little bit of heat? Sign me up! I made these originally around Valentine's Day, but you could switch up the sprinkles for any season - or leave them off completely. 


Smart Cookie Bark

Smart Cookie Bark

A departure from the usual...and so cute for back-to-school! This chocolate chip cookie bark is crispy but not overly crunchy. It's a buttery cookie that tastes like traditional chocolate chip cookies with just a hint of sugar cookie, thanks to all granulated sugar in the recipe.


7-Layer Cookie Cookies

7-layer cookie cookies

We all know the famous 7-layer cookies (maybe you call them Hello Dollies or Magic Bars). These cookies are a play on those. All of the flavors of a 7-layer cookie, but wrapped up in a classic cookie dough! A new classic! 


Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

The cutest puffballs of a cookie, these chickpea flour chocolate chip cookies just happen to be gluten-free! The sprinkling of sea salt on top is the chef's kiss that pulls it all together. 


Whole-Grain Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm just a fan of pumpkin and chocolate chips all around - see: pumpkin chocolate chip bars, pumpkin chocolate chip baked oatmeal, pumpkin cheesecake brownies...the list goes on. These pumpkin cookies are soft, tender, chock-full of spices, pumpkin, and chocolate...and are delicious for all cookie monsters (even gluten-free)!


Cherry Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

The cherries add that chewiness that oatmeal raisin-lovers crave, while the chocolate chips make these irresistible to chocolate chip cookie lovers.

Let's stay with the cherries and chocolate theme for a second. This version has four (!) kinds of chocolate, including chocolate chips, of course, plus those irresistible chewy cherries in the mix.

These espresso almond butter chocolate chip cookies are a bit sandy in texture, have a nice coffee and almond flavor and a big hit of chocolate from bittersweet chocolate chips.

I'm not going to lie. The day I baked these cookies, I ate nine of them. NINE. Do I really need to say more


Strawberry Cocoa Nib Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last but certainly not least, Strawberry Cocoa Nib Chocolate Chip Cookies. The freeze-dried strawberries add an unexpected bit of sweet-tart to the cookies, as well as a bit of chewiness. Not only are these just insanely delicious, they might be the prettiest chocolate chip cookies you'll ever make!
