  • 1¼ cups Giant Eagle salted butter
  • 1½ cups Giant Eagle light brown sugar

  Prep Time: 20 min. plus overnight chilling
• Cook Time: 20 min.

In a large bowl, sift (or whisk) the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar for 5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time until mixed, and then add the vanilla. Continue mixing for an additional minute, scraping the sides as necessary.

Turn mixer to low and add in the flour mixture, until just combined. Fold in the chocolate until evenly incorporated. Cover and chill dough for 24-72 hours.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Allow the chilled dough to sit out at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before baking to soften slightly.

Scoop out 3½ oz. of dough for each cookie, using a large cookie scoop. This is approximately ¼ cup. Place mounds onto your baking sheet, spacing them three inches apart.

Bake cookies for 15-18 minutes, until the edges are golden. Turn your baking sheet 180° once, halfway through baking.

Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with sea salt. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
