Servings 1 cookie


  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • ¼ cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
  • Sea salt flakes, for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with nonstick silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk to combine butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Add egg and vanilla and whisk again to thoroughly combine.
  • Add flour, baking soda and salt and stir to combine. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Place dough onto center of prepared baking sheet and top with a pinch of flaky sea salt, if desired.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes, or until the top is set and the edges are golden brown.
  • Allow to cool and set on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes, then serve and enjoy!



Egg: You can substitute 1 Tablespoon whisked whole egg. In a small bowl, beat an egg with a whisk and then measure out 1 Tablespoon for your cookie dough.
Making 2 cookies instead of 1: If you'd rather have two cookies instead of one big cookie, you can split the dough in half and bake them for a bit shorter time. Space your cookies a couple inches apart to give them room to spread, and bake for around 8-9 minutes or until they're set on top and golden around the edges.
