The French call these "coookieees" and almost every bakery offers them. These are the best you'll ever humble opinion!
Servings: 36 cookies
  • 3 cups (about 460g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 18 tablespoons (9 oz;270g) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ¾ cup (140g) dark muscovado sugar
  • ¾ cup (125g) light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces (400g) semi-sweet chocolate, preferably Valrhona, Lindt, or Scharffenberger coarsely chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line several baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together all the dry ingredients onto a piece of waxed or parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer, mix the butter until it is light and pale yellow. Add the sugars and mix until thoroughly combined and light. Add the eggs, one at a time, just until thoroughly combined. With the mixer running slowly, add the vanilla, then the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. Finally, with the mixer running slowly, add the chocolate. You may need to finish mixing in the chocolate by hand so that it is thoroughly mixed throughout the dough.
  4. Scoop out heaping tablespoons of dough, and place the mounds 1-1/2 inches (2.75cm) apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake in the center of the oven 12 to 15 minutes, depending on whether you like your cookeess soft, or fully baked!
