"It's sort of like my dream cookie."

Makes: about 15
Prep: 15 minutes
Total: 20 minutes


2 sticks unsalted European-style butter, room temperature, cut into cubes
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
splash whole milk
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons non-fat milk powder (optional)
2 cups mini chocolate chips


1. Heat oven to 500° F.

2. Combine butter and both sugars in a standing mixer with a paddle attachment. Mix for 1-2 minutes, or until ingredients are fully mixed.

3. Add in egg, vanilla, and splash of whole milk. Mix on high for 2-3 minutes, or until it becomes fluffy. It should double in size and be a pale color.

4. Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, milk powder (if using), and chocolate chips. Mix 1 minute, or until dry ingredients are just incorporated.

5. Scoop cookie dough balls, about 1/4 cup each, onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet 2-3 inches apart, and flatten with the palm of your hand.

6. Bake for for 3-5 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown on the edges but still raw in the middle. Throw in freezer immediately to stop the baking process. Store and serve directly from fridge.
