  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 185g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • A mix of dark and milk chocolates (as desired)


  1. Start by making brown butter. Melt the butter in a pan, stirring continuously for 5-10 minutes until brown bits form at the bottom. Remove from heat, pour into a bowl, and let cool completely.
  2. To the cooled brown butter, add both brown sugar and granulated sugar, and mix until combined.
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Sift the dry ingredients (flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt) into the butter mixture and stir until just combined.
  5. Fold in chunks of dark and milk chocolates.
  6. For best results, refrigerate the cookie dough overnight. However, you can bake immediately if desired.
  7. Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F). Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet, spacing them apart.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  10. Enjoy with milk or coffee for a perfect pairing!

These Chocolate Chunk Cookies are not just a treat; they’re an experience. Perfect for any occasion, or when you simply crave a homemade, comforting cookie.
