Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!!! Today, August 4th, is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day and that’s not a holiday I take lightly. You probably don’t need any convincing to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but maybe I can convince you which chocolate chip cookie recipe to bake. To celebrate, we centered Sprinkled episode 4 around the cookie of honor!
Chewy chocolate chunk cookies are the most loved cookies on my website. The number of comments on the recipe speaks volumes to its popularity. Big, bold, dense, and chewy, these are my go-to chocolate chip cookies. I love the recipe so much that I published it in my cookbook Sally’s Cookie Addiction. In the Sprinkled episode below, I explain why an extra egg yolk is used, why chilling the cookie dough is crucial, why I prefer more brown sugar over white, why I use melted butter, and how I shape the cookies, and more. Each of these characteristics work together to make the softest, densest, chewiest chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever taste. Promise.
Looking for a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe? Here are my soft chocolate chip cookies. They aren’t quite as chewy, but have the same soft-baked texture. So good!

Earlier this year, a video production crew filmed me at work in my kitchen. Most of the time was spent filming step-by-step recipe tutorials, but they also filmed me working, writing, photographing, and recipe testing. The series is called Sprinkled. 🙂 For the recipe tutorials, I selected my favorite blog recipes ranging from cookies and cake to brownies and pie.
