  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups regular semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, oil, and sugars until combined.

  2. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar.

  4. In two additions, add flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating until just combined. Do not overmix. Dough will be kinda fluffy and light!

  5. Fold in all chocolate chips.

  6. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

  7. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets.

  8. Bake at 375 for 8-11 minutes, or until edges and bottoms are lightly browned.

  9. Remove to wire racks to cool.

  10. Store cookies in airtight containers in a cool, dry place. Stack cookies with parchment paper or foil in-between layers. Cookies will keep for about a week.

Recipe Notes

These are good for at least a week, but best within the first 3 days. After 3 days, they get crumbly and a bit on the drier side - still a delicious cookie though. 

These freeze really well! Iced or plain, they freeze beautifully.
