  • 1 cup Butter Unsalted
  • 2.5 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 Eggs Large
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups Chocolate chunks Milk or semisweet


  • In a medium stainless saucepan, melt butter over medium high heat, stirring often. You can also cool it quicker in the fridge. 
  • Butter is browed and ready when you can move aside some of the bubbles/foam on top and see little brown bits at the bottom and start smelling a nutty aroma. Quickly remove saucepan from heat and pour it into a separate bowl to prevent it from cooking further and burning. Keep aside and let it cool for about 15 minutes. It should be warm but not hot. 
  • While the butter is cooling, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda in a separate mixing bowl. Keep aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, mix together melted browed butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar until smooth. 
  • Mix in eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. 
  • Dump the dry flour mixture into this wet mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chunks. 
  • Cover and chill dough for about 30-40 minutes to make it easier to handle and prevent spreading.
  • Scoop out heaped tablespoons of the dough and place them on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes OR until edges are firm and golden brown. Enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a cookie jar at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 3 days.
