Who doesn't like chocolate chip cookies? The gooey chocolate-y goodness can't be beat when you want it right now. And this recipe really is simple. And the flavor is perfect with extra vanilla extract.

These chocolate chip cookies are so classic, and easy to make. And when you're craving a dessert, but don't want to spend a lot of time making one, definitely try this recipe. But beware, once you eat one, you will want more. This chocolate chip cookie recipe can be made in an RV oven as well as a conventional oven. For this Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, using high quality pure vanilla extract will give the best results.

In an RV oven, these cookies will take longer. And try to get the temperature around 325 degrees. But if you have an RV oven you know it is difficult to achieve a specific temperature. But 325 degrees for about 14-16 minutes is what works for me. Check them during baking if needed. The texture of the cookie baked in the RV oven is more chewy than when baked in a conventional often even though there is no change in ingredients.


Yields about 18 cookies

1.5 sticks salted butter (12 tablespoons)

3/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)

2 eggs

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon salt

2.5 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

12-ounce bag of special dark or semi sweet chocolate chips





In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs, salt  

and vanilla and combine well.

Then mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl with a fork, and sift using a sifter or fine mesh wire strainer -into butter and sugar mixture. Get rid of any large, hard granules that didn’t fall through the mesh/sifter. These steps will ensure that the baking soda is thoroughly incorporated.

Mix all together (using a large mixing spoon or hand mixer) and add a little more flour (up to a 1/4 cup) if needed if it’s too wet.  Too much flour will make the result more bread like.

Refrigerate the dough for 2 to 24 hours.

Divide dough and roll into balls.  Place baking sheet. I prefer using a silicone baking mat.  

Bake at 350 degrees (in batches if needed) for about 10 minutes or until light golden brown.


I recommend baking these cookies on a silicone baking mat.

Remove the cookies from the oven while the tops of the cookies are still a little soft. Once they are cool, they will firm up a bit.

To bake these cookies in an an RV oven, set the oven to approximately 325 degrees and bake for about 15-16 minutes. The baked cookies will have a mottled look on the top, because the only heating element is on the bottom. The texture of the cookies baked in an RV oven will have a chewy soft texture. More chewy than when baked in a conventional oven even though it is the same recipe. It is really yummy.
