  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 cups chocolate disks or chips, wafers, chunks
  • Flaky Sea Salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicon liner.
  2. In a heavy bottomed sauce pan, melt butter until browned. It takes about 5 minutes for butter to begin to smell nutty and start to brown, but watch carefully because it goes from perfectly browned to burned very fast.
  3. Once browned, remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Combine flours, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; set aside.
  5. Combine browned butter and sugars in the bowl of your mixer and mix until combined.
  6. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing thoroughly until combined.
  7. Stir in vanilla extract.
  8. With your mixer running on low, gradually add flour mixture; mixing until just combined. *if using chips or chunks, stir into dough now.
  9. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
  10. Once dough has chilled, roll out into 1 inch balls.
  11. Place disks in the middle of the dough and press on top of the dough.
  12. Place on a cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
  13. Sprinkle balls with flaked sea salt (optional).
  14. Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes.
  15. Cool and serve.
