Course cookies
Servings 2 dozen


  • 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


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  • Place the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk and set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake them until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.
  • Cool on pan for 1 minute then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool (but eat them warm because that's the best!!)
