Amena's Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chef John 15773

"This recipe is very adaptable as far as what and how much you add to the basic dough. I used a normal amount of chips, but this amount can be doubled without issue. You can also toss in dried fruit and nuts fearlessly."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper.
  2. Mash the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large mixing bowl with a spatula until creamy and smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla; whisk vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds.
  3. Whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda together in a small bowl; dump into the butter mixture and mix until just combined. Fold the semi-sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips into the mixture. Arrange onto the prepared baking sheet using a small scoop or large spoon.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes; remove from oven and allow to cool on the sheet for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.

These turned out absolutely perfect. I made this with my two boys this morning so we could bring a random act of kindness to their babysitter. We only made one change and that was upping the vanilla to a full teaspoon. I didn't really measure the chips out, I just used the random amounts I had in each bag that I had leftover from other cookies. I made no other changes. These turned out wonderfully. We baked the cookies at 350 degrees and they were done in exactly ten minutes. The boys really liked the different chips in this cookie and it was great for me because I could use up the little bits I had in my cupboard in each chip bag PLUS it made the perfect amount--neither too much or too little. This recipe's a keeper.


I am not bashful about calling it as I see it, assigning a low star rating to a recipe if I feel it warrants it. I know Chef John has quite an avid following but frankly, I don’t get it. I’ve tried a few of his recipes (which are fairly basic and generic in most instances anyway) and have been less than impressed every time, particularly since he is a “professional” and not a home cook. In this case, I found these cookies, simply put, greasy and unattractive. Further, they are only a very slight variation of the Toll House Cookie, the only difference being that he slightly increases the ratio of white sugar to brown sugar, a very negligible difference in the overall outcome. I took a bite out of fairness for the purpose of this review but did not continue – then again, if you like the greasy and sort of flattish Nestle Toll House cookie, you’ll like this one too as it’s essentially the same recipe. Hubs was a little more favorable than I, saying they were edible, but “not like your grandma makes.” Note: also, for the purpose of submitting the best possible photo of these cookies, I selected a few of the better looking ones. Most did not look as good as the picture.


This was such a good cookie recipe! Loved that it uses different flavor chips. the cookie part was very good too, not too sweet. I doubled the recipe and everyone was fighting over the cookies. they couldn't come out of the oven fast enough. my cookies didn't spread that much they kind of stayed in drop form, after the first pan came out and I realized that, it was an easy fix by flattening the cookie slightly with a cup before putting in the oven. this will be my new go to recipe for chocolate chip cookies!
