  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180C°).
  • Add the butter, sugar, and brown sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on medium for 4-5 minutes to cream together.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract. Mix to combine.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix to combine, without overmixing.
  • Add the chocolate chunks and fold in.
  • Using a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop, portion out two scoops per cookie. Roll the two scoops together to form a large cookie. Flatten the dough a little bit and place it on a lined baking sheet. Repeat with the rest, leaving space between the cookies.
  • Press extra chocolate chunks into the top of the cookies.
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes or until just cooked. Ovens vary.


Notes - Be careful not to overmix the dough. Make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature.
Substitutions - Try gluten free flour if you want. (I haven't tried it.) Try a different chocolate chip.
Storage - To freeze: Set the dough balls on a cookie sheet and freeze. After a few hours, move the dough balls to a container with a lid or a freezer bag.  To bake, either thaw or bake from frozen and add a few minutes to the cook time.
