This recipe for Ultimate Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies is a total game changer. There is no dough chilling required, and you can mix all the ingredients together in about 10 minutes total! Thanks to the melted butter, these cookies are oven-ready in a flash. Even though this recipe is very easy to prepare, the cookies still taste like you spent hours making them. They are perfectly salty and sweet, with crisp edges and soft, fudgy centers. They really have just the right combo of flavor, texture, and visual appeal! You need to bake these cookies ASAP and have a big glass of milk ready – yum!

Ultimate Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies are my husband’s absolute favorite cookie of all time! He just can’t get enough of them. The girls definitely adore them too, but I think they love helping make them most of all.

Preparing the Cookie Dough

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees, and line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Melt 2 sticks of salted butter over low heat.

Next, sift and stir together the flour, milk powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

The dough will seem a little thin, which is totally normal. Next, add in the chocolate chips.

Adding Chocolate Chips

Gently stir or fold in until mixed throughout.

No need to chill the dough! Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop cookie dough pieces onto prepared baking sheets roughly 2-3 inches apart. The cookies will spread.

Bake 9-11 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown but the centers are still soft. The cookies will fall as they cool, resulting in those glorious crinkled edges!

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
