  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 14 large cookies


2 C + 2 Tb all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
12 Tb unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C semisweet chocolate chunks


1.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Whisk flour, soda and salt together in a medium bowl.  Set aside.
2.  In a separate bowl, beat by hand the butter and sugars until thoroughly mixed.  Beat in the egg, yolk and vanilla.  Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Stir in the chocolate chunks.
3.  Roll a scant 1/4 C of dough into a ball.  Hold the ball with the fingertips of both hands and pull into 2 equal halves.  Rotate the halves so the jagged sides are facing up and join the halves together, being careful not to smooth the uneven surface on top.  Place the formed cookies onto parchment lined baking sheets, jagged surface up, spacing them 2 1/2″ apart.  I can get 6 cookies on a sheet.
4.  Bake until the cookies are lightly browned and the outer edges start to harden but the centers are still soft and puffy, about 15 minutes.  Cool the cookies completely on the baking sheet.  Remove once completely cooled.
