Costco Cookies Recipe 

To make this chocolate chip cookie Costco copycat, I used the ingredient list on the actual Costco cookie package. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that these cookies taste just like the popular bakery treats! Just be warned – when you make these, your family will likely ask you where you put the Kirkland package. 

Okay, I’m kidding. But really, this chocolate chip cookie recipe is the best because you don’t have to set foot in the warehouse. Now you won’t fall prey to buying 200 paper towel rolls every time you crave those delicious Costco cookies because you can easily make them from home.

Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Cookies 

  • Salted Butter – If you only have unsalted butter, add an extra pinch of salt to the dough. 
  • Brown Sugar  – We use more brown sugar than granulated to keep these cookies nice and chewy. 
  • Granulated Sugar 
  • Egg 
  • Corn Syrup – There is A LOT of corn syrup in this recipe to make them deliciously chewy. 
  • Molasses – Adding a tiny bit of molasses gives the cookies a beautiful color and adds extra flavor. 
  • All Purpose Flour 
  • Salt 
  • Baking Soda– this actually helps the cookies spread and brown slightly while baking.
  • Chocolate Chunks – I get my chocolate chunks at Walmart because it’s the only store local to me that sells them! I buy the Tollhouse brand and they match the Costco cookie chunks perfectly.

How to Make Costco Chocolate Chip Cookies 

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. 
  2. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with a silicon mat or a sheet of parchment paper, then set aside. This is important for these cookies, because they will otherwise stick to the cookie sheet.
  3. Using either a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light in color and fluffy in texture. (Approximately 2-3 minutes). 
  4. Scrape the sides of the bowl and add in the egg, corn syrup and molasses. Mix until well combined.
  5. Next, add in the dry ingredients: flour, salt and baking soda. Mix until a sticky dough forms. Emphasize on the sticky! This will not feel like your normal cookie dough because of all of that corn syrup.
  6. Finally, stir in the chocolate chunks until fully incorporated. Be sure not to overmix. 
  7. Portion out your dough into 3 tbsp portions using a cookie scoop (#24) or your hands. Shape the dough into a ball and arrange them on your cookie sheet.
  8. Bake your cookie dough at 350° F for 9-11 minutes. You will know the cookies are done when they start to spread and the edges begin to turn golden brown. 
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan before transferring to a wire rack.
  10. To get the soft edge that Costco cookies are known for, store the cookies in an airtight container overnight. This waiting period helps the edges to soften. If you can’t wait and need to eat them right out of the oven, the edges will be a little buttery and crisp.

Can I freeze Costco’s Cookies? 

Yes! Freeze the cookies in a single layer on a cookie sheet for 1 hour. At that point you can gather and stack your frozen cookies and place them into an airtight container and freeze them for up to 3 months.

My cookies spread too much – How can I fix that? 

If your first batch of cookies spread more than you’d like, all you need to do is add about 1/4 cup more flour to your cookie dough. Differences in climate and elevation can make cookies spread more in some places than others.
