Canal House Thin and Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

Canal House Thin and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


Adapted from Canal House Cooks Every Day

Notes: For best results, make this batter and store it in the fridge at least 24 hours prior to baking and up to 1 week in advance.

I like to weigh (so anal, sorry) my cookie balls before baking and find that 1 oz (28 g) is a nice size for these cookies.

Also, if you like thick-and-chewy chocolate chip cookies, try these.


  • 10 ounces room temperature high-fat butter, such as Kerrygold
  • 1¼ cups (298 g) dark brown sugar
  • ¾ cup (149g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt*
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1¾ cups plus 2 tablespoons (265g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 8 ounces chocolate chips

*It seems like a lot, but go for it…I even use salted butter, and the cookies are not too salty.


  1. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla bean paste, and salt in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until light, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and mix on medium speed until blended, about 2 minutes.
  2. Whisk the flour and baking soda together, then add to the dough, continuing to mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in the chocolate chips. Using a spatula, quickly mix the dough, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  3. Remove the bowl from the mixer. Portion the dough into balls weighing about 1 oz (28 g) each. For best results, store the dough balls in the fridge for at least 24 hours prior to baking and up to 1 week in advance.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Once heated, place the balls, about 4 inches apart, onto the parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until golden brown, 10–11 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.
