Course Dessert, quick & easy


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped dark chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and both sugars, until lightened in color, about 4 minutes. Add in vanilla extract, and egg. Mix until fully incorporated.
  • Pour in all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat together until a slightly sticky dough forms. Fold in chocolate chunks.
  • With an ice cream scooper, plop rounds of dough onto a greased cookie sheet an inch apart. They will spread so be cautious. Bake for 12 minutes for a slightly underdone doughy middle, and 14 minutes for a soft cookie. Serve warm with a glass of milk.
