  • 1 cup butter at room temperatur
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups chocolate feves
  • Maldon salt for finishing


  • Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  • To a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugars. Cream with a hand mixer until combined.
  • Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition until smooth.
  • Add in the vanilla, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add in the flour (I like to add it in 3 parts) and mix until just combined.
  • Add in the chocolates and stir to evenly distribute them.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Once chilled, use a cookie scoop to portion out approximately 2 Tablespoon balls of dough. I like to roll the balls to be taller than wide (see photo) for even baking.
  • Sprinkle the cookie dough balls with a pinch of Maldon salt.
  • Bake for 7-8 minutes, depending on your oven. The cookies should be golden brown at the edges and puffy in the center.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for approximately 5 minutes before removing from the pan to cool completely.
