HUGE Half Pound Chocolate Chip Cookies are ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookie perfection! Buttery and soft on the inside, crispy and chewy on the outside, these can be an indulgent treat for one, or can be shared!


  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cold eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8 ounces chopped semi-sweet chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix the butter and both sugars together on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add in the eggs, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix until combined and smooth.
  3. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the flour, mixing until just combined. Add in the chocolate chips and chopped chocolate and mix until evenly incorporated.
  4. Using a food scale, measure out the dough into 8-ounce portions. Form the dough into a ball and place 4-inches apart on lined baking sheet. I fit 4 cookies on each baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 13-14 minutes until the bottoms are lightly browned and edges are golden. The tops of the cookies will feel set, but the insides will be slightly under-baked, this is fine.
  6. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 4 minutes before transferring them to a wore rack to cool completely.


store airtight for up to 3 days.
