  • ½ cup or 115 grams butter softened completely to room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 6 tbsp white granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or morsels
  • ¼ cup grated dark chocolate optional


Combine the dry ingredients

  • In a medium bowl, sift the flour, and whisk together baking soda and salt until combined.  Set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugars

  • Using a separate mixing bowl, either with a stand mixer or a hand mixer, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar on medium-high speed until the mixture is light and fluffy and a pale yellow color, about 2 minutes.
  • Add egg and mix on medium-speed until combined, about 1 minute.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and beat on medium-low speed until just combined.
  • Using a spatula or wooden spoon, mix in the chocolate chips and grated dark chocolate by hand until they are evenly combined. NOTE: Do not over work the dough or the cookies will come out hard!
  • Chill the dough.  Transfer the dough to an airtight container and refrigerate it for 10 - 15 minutes.
  • Pre-heat oven at 190°C and prepare baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator and scoop out with ice cream scoop and place them on a baking sheet that is covered with either parchment paper
  • Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the edges are slightly crispy and the tops of the cookies are very lightly golden or top feels firm when lightly touched. Bake 1 sheet at a time if doing it by batch. NOTE: For small cookies bake only for 8 - 10 minutes
  • Remove the cookies and let them cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes.  Then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve and enjoy! Bon Appetit!


Feel free to add in:
  • Nuts: Chopped pecans, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, pistachios, and/or macadamia nuts are also delicious add-ins.
  • Sprinkles: Toss in a handful of colored sprinkles if you’d like to make these cookies extra festive!
