We love these cookies. Unlike a traditional chewy chocolate chip cookie, these aren't overly sweet and have a bit more of a crunch to them.


  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the flour. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  2. Scoop the dough out onto a large sheet of plastic wrap. Use the wrap to shape into a log about 10 inches long and 2-3 inches thick. Seal the ends and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Remove the log of dough from the fridge and unwrap the plastic wrap. Use a sharp knife to slice the dough into rounds about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Bake for 13 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool completely before serving.
