  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks
  • Maldon sea salt flakes


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, and powdered sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the egg yolks, egg, and vanilla extract and mix until incorporated. Carefully add the flour mixture to the bowl and mix until dough forms.
  • Using a spatula, fold in the chocolate chunks.
  • Using a large cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared cookie sheets and sprinkle sea salt flakes on top.
  • Bake 10-12 minutes (the cookies will firm up as they cool if they still look soft to you).
  • Let cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container.
