  • 1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 8 Tbsp Salted Butter Mostly Melted
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated White Sugar
  • 1 1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 3/4-1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Pinch Course Ground Sea Salt EACH


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside. 
  • Place butter in microwave and melt for 20-30 seconds until nearly melted.* Add butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla extract to a large bowl. Using a stand or hand mixture beat on medium-low until combined. 
  • Add eggs and beat until just combined, about 20 seconds, try not to over-mix them. Add the dry ingredients in and stir to combine. Finally, add in chocolate chips and stir to combine. The dough should not be sticky. 
  • Use either a cookie scoop or spoon to evenly divide the dough. Place each one on a prepared cookie sheet about an inch apart from one another. Add a pinch of course ground sea salt on the top of each cookie.
  • Place cookies in oven on middle rack (if using two cookie sheets rotate halfway through) for about 10 minutes. The cookies will be just turning gold when they are finished. Remove from oven and let cool. Enjoy!

*When I say nearly melted butter i mean that the majority is melted, but there are still some visible chunks of soft butter left. 
*It's important to not over-bake the cookies. Do not wait until they are golden or brown, because they will be hard.
