  • 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 (4) oz Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate bars chopped coarsely


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine sugars and butter, beat until fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add vanilla and one egg, mix until just combined, then add the second egg, mixing until incorporated.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, corn starch and salt. With mixing speed on low, gradually add dry ingredients mixing until no “flour” pockets remain.
  • Remove bowl from stand and fold in chocolate chunks. You’ll want to add all of the shards or shavings that result when chopping bars- that’s what makes these “freckled!” Place dough into the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour. Remove and let stand for 5 minutes before scooping and placing onto the prepared sheets.
  • Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes- the edges will become light brown and the centers should still look slightly soft and gooey- they’ll firm up once they’ve cooled for a bit. Remove from oven and allow to cool on sheets for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
