Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

Author Kara Miller - Kara in the Kitchen


  • 2 1/2 sticks butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 ounces baking chocolate chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Add the flour mixture in two batches, stirring just until combined.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped chocolate.
  6. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick mat. Scoop dough into two-Tablespoon balls, and flatten with your palm once they are on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of raw sugar.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookie are golden-brown and the centers still look a bit doughy. Remove from oven and set cookie sheet on a cooling rack for 5 minutes before completely removing cookies to cooling rack.
