How to cook

Sift the dry ingredients

1

The first thing you want to do is measure out 1 cup of all-purpose flour. And make sure to spoon it in and level it off with a knife. Measuring flour properly is super important in baking.

2

Now place a mesh sieve on top of your mixing bowl and add the flour in along with 1/3 cup dutch cocoa powder, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1 tsp baking powder.

3

Now gently sift the dry ingredients into your bowl. If you see any larger clumps, just press them in with the back of a spoon. Now set the dry ingredients aside for later.

Mix sugar and butter

1

In a separate bowl add 1/3 cup unsalted melted butter along with 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup of golden brown sugar. 

2

Using a whisk thoroughly mix the sugar in the melted butter together.

Add eggs add vanilla

1

Now add one large egg plus 1 large egg yolk. Then pour in 1 tsp of vanilla extract.

2

Now grab your whisk again and mix it very well. You want the consistency to be very smooth so this might require a little bit of elbow grease.

Mix the dry ingredients + choc chip

1

Now grab your sifted dry ingredients and add them to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix them gently with a spatula.

2

Now before adding in 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips, reserve about 1/4 cup. They will be used to top the cookies before baking. 

3

Now mix in the chocolate chips into the dough and evenly as possible.

4

Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and grab your cookie scoop. ( I used a medium size)

Scoop, roll, and bake the cookies

1

Scoop out heaping mounds of the chocolate cookie dough onto your baking sheet. Making sure to space them about at least 2 inches apart. 

2

Now you can leave them as they are or you can roll each ball into your hand for a prettier looking cookie. But that’s optional though.

3

Now top each cookie with a few of those chocolate chips we reserved earlier and bake the cookies at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 9 minutes. Once they’re baked, let the cookies slightly cool before enjoying them.
