These Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies are a tweak to the classic recipe, but with fewer ingredients making the recipe simple and quick to put together.

It surprises many people to know that you don’t absolutely need to add vanilla, salt, baking powder – or for that matter, baking soda – to the cookie dough in order to make great chocolate chip cookies.

Two cups of chocolate chips may seem like a lot for a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe, but no one says this version should taste simple. Wait until you bite into the result.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 10-12 minutes
Makes about 2-3 dozen cookies
