chocolate chip cookies, updated with earthy buckwheat and bittersweet chocolate



  • 14 oz all-purpose flour
  • 4 oz buckwheat flour
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 ½ sticks (1 1/4 cups) unsalted butter
  • 1 ¼ cups (10 ounces) light brown sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (8 ounces) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • two 5 oz bars of 70% chocolate
  • maldon salt


combine flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl and whisk to combine the dry ingredients. chop the chocolate bars very roughly into chunks. Using a mixer fitted with paddle attachment, 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 just combined, 5 to 10 seconds. Drop chocolate chunks into batter. using an ice cream scoop, scoop out cookie dough and store on in whatever fits all the dough (jelly roll pan?) in the fridge for min 24 hrs. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Set aside. sprinkle the cookie dough with sea salt and bake until light brown, 18 to 20 minutes. cool. eat


Cook time reflects prep and baking, but doesn’t take into account the recommended 24-36 hours of dough chilling.
