Copycat Panera Chocolate Chipper Chip Cookies
I love Panera’s Chocolate Chipper Cookies, they are soft and chewy in the middle with a little bit of a crunch on the edge. Every time I go there they ask, “would you like to add a cookie for 99 cent?”, well Ya of course I do!!!!
The trick is to squish the cookie dough down a little bit once you get it on the tray, and don’t over bake!!! The middle should be very soft.
My sister was just saying how I alway make chocolate chip cookies and she always makes sugar cookies. At least you guys get the best of both worlds from us :)
I used a large cookie dough scoop.
- 1¼ cups soft butter
- 1¼ cups brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 3½ cups flour
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups mini chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In large bowl cream butter and sugars together, then add vanilla and eggs. In small bowl combine flour, corn starch, soda and salt. Add the flour mixture into the large bowl and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
- Scoop large (about 2 tablespoons) onto baking sheet, leaving about 2" in between. Give the cookies a little squish with your palm.
- Bake at 350 for 11-13 mins or until the edge just start to turn light brown. Don't over bake.
Lovely cookies dear. BTW I really liked the tops on baking cooking. Thanks… :)
These cookies are so good. I just baked them for care packages for my grandkids for finals week. I hope they like them as much as my husband does. Thanks so much!
Your welcome! Hope they enjoy :)

I’ve made these cookies but they are crumbly and I’m not sure why? Any help with that ? Please and thank you.
Hmmm, I’m not sure. I would try adding in a tablespoon or 2 of water until you can mix and all the dough comes together without the crumbles. Hope this helps :)

I figured it out! I put 1 1/4 stick of butter instead of 2 sticks and 1/4. Gonna attempt these again
So so good!! Been trying out different recipes to find the perfect cookie. Been through over a dozen. These are a winner! Already got requests for more!
Thanks Nancy. So glad you like them :)

The first time I made these, they were SO delicious, The second time around, however, weren’t as good. They came out a little dry and not sweet enough. I put the correct amount of sugars, but maybe because I didn’t pack the brown sugar…What do you think?
Ya, I would say try packing the brown sugar. If the dough looks crumbly you could always add a tablespoon of water to it. Hope this helps.

Going to make these tomorrow. Does it matter if I used salted or unsalted butter?
Hi Kelly, You can use salted or unsalted. We almost always bake with salted butter. Since the recipe already contains salt, using unsalted butter shouldn’t matter. Thanks!
Great cookies!!! Added a little more salt and loved them! :)
Thanks Jeanne! I glad you like them.

I’ve never had Panera’s cookies before but now I’ve got to try them! These look amazing. That chocolate-chip-to-dough ratio is on point.
What would be the best way to make these heart shaped, without, over handling? Suggestions please.
Hi Sue, I have a recipe for heart shaped chocolate chip cookies here: https://www.thesemisweetsisters.com/2019/01/22/heart-shaped-chocolate-chip-cookies/
