Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes

Total Time 20 minutes

Servings 15 cookies


  • ½pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and just warm to the touch
  • ¾cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½cup granulated sugar
  • 1egg
  • 2teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾cups all-purpose flour
  • 2tablespoons nonfat milk powder (Note: we used Nido)
  • 1 ¼teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼teaspoon baking soda
  • 12ounces semisweet chocolate chips (dark chocolate chips or even chunks would be just as decadent)
  • 1/4cup flaked salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. With a wooden spoon, mix the sugars together in a large bowl and add the melted butter. Stir vigorously for about a minute or more. Mix the egg and vanilla in the measuring cup you used for the sugar and add to the mixture. Stir until the mix gathers a glossy sheen, about 1 more minute.
  3. Mix in the flour, milk powder, salt, baking powder, and baking soda until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed.
  4. Use a #24 squeeze handle scoop to portion the dough (or lightly form into balls about the size of a golf ball) and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper about 2 to 3 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown around the edges but still soft in the middle. The cookies will fall as they cool. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
