This double chocolate chip cookies recipe makes thick, chewy cookies with chunks of melted chocolate topped with a sprinkle of sea salt.
In the bowl with a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer), combine the butter and sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined, 1 minute. Scrape down the side of the bowl as needed.
With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture and mix until just incorporated, 30 seconds. Stir in the chocolate chips.1
Scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough, roll into a ball. Slightly flatten the ball and place on prepared cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and place on prepared cookie sheet 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake 10-12 minutes, until edges are firm and the center is still soft. Let cool on the cookie sheets 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.2
