Print Recipe


  • 1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick, room temp
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate roughly chopped
  • Finishing salt, or coarse sea salt for garnish (optional)


  • Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
  • Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer, or hand-held mixer, on medium speed, beat butter, sugar and brown sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add egg yolks, egg and vanilla and beat until mixture is pale and fluffy, about 4 minutes. You may need to occasionally scrape down the sides of the batter.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture until just blended.
  • Fold in the chocolate with a wooden spoon or spatula.
  • Spoon the batter by heaping tablespoon onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper, keeping them separated by about 1 inch.
  • Bake cookies, rotating the sheets halfway through, for about 12 minutes, or until just turning golden brown on the edges. 
  • Let cool slightly on sheets and then transfer to wire racks.  Sprinkle with coarse salt, if desired.  Enjoy!
