Delicious Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Nothing tastes like gooey dark chocolate chunk cookies right from the oven. Learn how to make fresh chocolate chunk cookies at home with my recipe.  


1 3/4 cups unbleached organic all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
14 tbsp organic unsalted butter (1 3/4 sticks)
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
3/4 cup organic packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 large free-range egg
1 large free-range egg yolk
1 1/4 cup organic dark chocolate chunks
3/4 cup organic chopped walnuts


1. Position oven rack in middle and preheat oven to 375 degrees

2. Butter cookie sheets

3. Whisk flour and baking soda together in a medium bowl, set aside

4. Heat 10 tbsp of butter in a (non cast iron) skillet over medium-high heat until melted, 2 minutes

5. Continue cooking and stirring constantly until butter is dark brown, 1-3 minutes

6. Remove from heat and pour into a heat proof bowl. Melt remaining 4 tbsp into hot butter.

7. Add both sugars, salt and vanilla to bowl with butter and whisk together.

8. Add egg and yolk and whisk until smooth, about 30 seconds

9. Let mixture stand for 3 minutes and then whisk for another 30 seconds.

10. Repeat process of resting and whisking until mixture is thick and shiny

11. Using a rubber spatula, stir in flour mixture until just combined, about 1 minute

12. Add chocolate chips and nuts and mix until just combined

13. Divide dough into 16 portions, each about 3 tbsp

14. Arrange 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets.

15. Bake for 12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through

16. Cool and serve

These cookies are amazing! The extra step of browning the butter makes a huge difference.
