How to make it

  • Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl, Set aside.
  • Using a mixer fitted with paddle attatchment, cream butter and sugars together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Reduce speed to low , add dry ingredients and mix until combined, 5 to 10 seconds.
  • Drop chocolate pieces in and incorporate them without breaking them. Press plastic wrap against dough and refrigerate for 24 to 36 hours. Dough may be used in batches, and can be refrigerated for up to 72 hours.
  • When ready to bake preheat oven to 350*. Line baking sheet with parchment paper .
  • Scoop 6 3 1/2 ounce of dough( the size of generous golf balls) onto baking sheet, making sure to turn horizontally any chocolate pieces that are poking out; it will make for a more attractive cookie.
