Ashley’s Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  

January 22, 2016

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature

2 Tbsp. sugar

2 Tbsp. turbinado sugar (aka Sugar in the Raw)

3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. packed light or dark brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp. vanilla

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 lb semi- or bittersweet chocolate, cut into rough chunks

flaky sea salt, to finish (optional)

Directions

1Heat oven to 350°F.

2In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars together with an electric mixer until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla, scraping down the bowl as needed. Beat in the salt and baking soda, then the flour on a low speed until just mixed. Add the chocolate chunks, along with all the tiny bits.

3Scoop large balls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and if you like, sprinkle each with a pinch of sea salt. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until golden but still soft and gooey in the middle.

4Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
