  • Author: Sophia Inza
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 12
  • Total Time: under 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2 dozen 1x


2.5 cups all-purpose flour

1 heaping teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 cups packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract

1.5 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

flaky sea salt or kosher salt for topping


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. Place the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk and set aside.
  3. Place the butter and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk or paddle attachment (or simply use a hand mixer). Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until blended.
  4. Add the flour mixer and blend on low until the flour is incorporated. Then beat on high for a few seconds. Add in the chocolate chips and beat a few seconds more until they’re incorporated.
  5. Using a 2 tablespoon dough scooper (or just a large spoon), scoop onto your prepared baking sheet. Don’t flatten them. Lightly sprinkle with flaky sea salt or kosher salt.
  6. Bake them until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.
  7. Cool on pan for 1 minute then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool (but eat them warm because that’s the best!!)
