  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 pinch salt**
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chunks (morsels) (I used dark chocolate (semi sweet)

**I use salted butter but if you use unsalted then add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.


    • Pre-heat oven to 375F (190C).  Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
    • In a large bowl on medium speed cream butter and vanilla (approximately 1 minute), then add granulated sugar and cream well (approximately 2 minutes). 
    • In a medium bowl whisk together the brown sugar, salt and baking soda until no lumps appear.  Then stir into creamed mixture with a wooden spoon or spatula.
    • On medium speed beat in the egg, combine well.  
    • Add the flour a little at a time, with a wooden spoon or spatula.  Gently stir in the chocolate chunks.  Use a large spoon or ice cream scoop to make 13 ( or more if you want smaller cookies) even mounds of dough (do not flatten) on prepared cookie sheet.  Bake for 12-15 minutes.  Cool completely before serving.  Enjoy.
