½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup unsalted butter (room temperature)

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup white sugar

1 large egg

1 egg yolk

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

12 ounces dark chocolate chunks

1 tablespoon sea salt flakes


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.

Add the room temperature butter, brown sugar and white sugar to a large mixing bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer.

Cream the butter and sugar together on medium speed for 2 minutes, using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer.

Add the egg, egg yolks and vanilla extract to the butter/sugar mixture.

Beat on medium speed until combined.

Add the flour mixture and beat until all of the ingredients are combined.

Add the dark chocolate chunks and use a spatula to stir them into the cookie dough.

Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the cookie dough out onto a baking stone or parchment lined baking sheet.

Place in the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes.

Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately sprinkle flakey sea salt over the cookies.

Allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire baking rack, or eat immediately for warm, cookie goodness!
