  • 500 grams (4 cups) all-purpose flour or use half bread flour and half cake flour
  • 7.5 mL ( tsp) baking powder
  • 7.5 mL ( tsp) Diamond Crystal fine kosher salt
  • 6.25 mL ( tsp) baking soda
  • 290 grams ( cups) unsalted butter 2 ½ sticks, room temperature
  • 300 grams ( cups) light brown sugar
  • 200 grams (1 cup) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 10 mL (2 tsp) pure vanilla extract
  • 570 grams ( lbs) dark chocolate chips either whole or ground in the food processor


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour(s), baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars for at least 5 minutes, or until the mixture becomes very light in color.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well and scraping down the bowl between each addition with a spatula.
  • Add the vanilla, and beat again.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry mixture, scraping down the bowl as needed.
  • Add the chocolate and mix to incorporate (whether chips or chocolate shards).
  • Portion out the dough and roll into 60 balls. Place in an air-tight container and refrigerate for 36 to 72 hours.
  • To bake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Place portions of cookie dough on a sheet pan about 1 inch apart on a Silpat-lined cookie sheet or parchment lined.
  • Bake the cookies for about 18 minutes until the edges are golden brown (less time if baking on parchment). Place the sheet on a wire rack to cool slightly before enjoying.
  • Alternatively, freeze the balls of cookie dough on a baking sheet, then transfer to a tupperware to store in the freezer for when you need a cookie or two.
