This ooey gooey soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie for one is big enough to share but so good you’ll want it all to yourself!


  • 6 tablespoons (48 g) all purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon cornstarch
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of 1 whisked egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 23 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus more for the top
  • flakey sea salt, for sprinkling


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer to mix together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla until well incorporated, about 20-30 seconds.
  3. Add the egg and mix until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed just until combined. Stop when a few streaks of flour remain.
  5. Add 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips and fold into the dough. Do not overmix.
  6. Chill the dough uncovered for 15 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  8. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and form it into a disc shape. Top with more chocolate chips as desired. 
  9. Bake for 11 to 12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the center of the cookie is puffy and slightly under baked. Remove from the oven allow to cool on the baking sheet for 10 to 15 minutes. Carefully transfer the cookie to a wire rack to cool completely. 
  10. Top with flakey sea salt before serving (optional) 


May be frozen. Cool completely and then wrap in two layers of plastic wrap. Freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost at room temperature before serving.
