Giant Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 2 sticks butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Add the egg and vanilla and beat just until incorporated.
  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • Using a spatula, mix in the cocoa powder and instant espresso powder until incorporated.
  • 12 ounces (about 2 ¼ cups) all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • Add flour, sea salt, and baking powder to dough and mix with a spatula until just barely incorporated. The flour should not be fully combined yet.
  • 12 ounces (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
  • Add chocolate chips and nuts (if using). Stir well until dry and wet ingredients have full combined into cookie dough.
  • If possible, chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or reusable silicon mats. Remove dough from refrigerator.
  • Using your hands, divide dough into 12 equal portions (about 4 ounces each). Roll each portion into a ball, flatten slightly, and place on baking sheets a few inches apart.
  • Bake at 350°F until cookies begin to crack and are no longer doughy, about 18 minutes. (Note: If using two oven racks, switch positions of baking sheets after 8 minutes to ensure that the cookies cook evenly.)
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes on cookie sheets. Transfer to wire rack and let cool, about 30 minutes. Store in an air tight container. Cookies will keep for up to a week.
