Ingredients

  • 8 ½ ounces cake flour
  • 8 ½ ounces bread flour
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 10 ounces unsalted butter softened
  • 12 ounces dark brown sugar
  • 6 ounces white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Combine the cake flour, bread flour, baking soda, baking powder and coarse salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • In a large mixer add the butter and sugars and mix for 5 minutes until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl in between. Add the vanilla and combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients a little at a time and mix until just combined. Add the chocolate discs and fold them into the batter. Cover the dough and and refrigerate dough for up to 72 hours.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop 1/4 cup sized cookie dough balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet, 6 cookies per sheet and sprinkle the tops with fleur de sel. Bake the cookies for 16-20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. If the cookies are a little puffy, bang the pan on the counter to release any excess air pockets. Or use a spatula to flatten the cookies to make more dense.
