These chewy chocolate chip cookies have ooey gooey centers, perfectly crispy edges, and melty chocolate chunks. An easy-to-make recipe from scratch all in one bowl! You can either make these cookies right away or freeze the cookie dough so you enjoy cookies at any time!
1cupchopped dark chocolate(or any chocolate of your choice)
Flaky sea salt for garnish
In a mixer or a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and well combined. To the same bowl, add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined. Do NOT over mix. Fold in chopped chocolate.
Using a cookie scoop, form dough into balls (approx. 1.5 tablespoons of dough). Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate the dough balls for, at least, 20 minutes (the longer, the better). You can freeze any leftover dough for future use.*
When ready to bake, remove dough from fridge. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place dough balls on baking sheet.
Bake for 10-11 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with sea salt. It's ok if they are a little undercooked, they will continue to bake as they cool. Cool for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
*You can place the cookie dough in a freezer bag and freeze for for up to 3 months.
