Tartine's Double-Chocolate Cookies

Tartine's Double-Chocolate Cookies

I'm not the one to play favourites, but this is the ultimate, deluxe Chocolate Cookie. Add some chocolate chips in the last step to take it to the next level. Recipe adapted from Tartine's First Cookbook.


225gr bittersweet chocolate- double the quantity if you need chocolate chips
150gr AP flour
75gr cocoa powder
2tsp baking powder
120gr butter
250gr sugar
2 eggs
1/4tsp salt
1tsp vanilla extract
75ml whole milk


  1. Preheat the oven at 180C and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate over a bain-marie. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy.
  5. Slowly incorporate sugar and continue beating until completely smooth.
  6. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each.
  7. Beat in the salt and vanilla.
  8. Add the melted chocolate and continue beating.
  9.  Add the milk and beat until combined.
  10. Add the flour mixture and beat on low speed until everything is just incorporated. Don't overmix. If you are using chocolate chips, add them now and mix until just combined.
  11. Using a spoon, drop the dough onto your baking sheets.
  12. Bake until they are barely firm, about 7 minutes.
  13. Let cool completely before moving the cookies.

The traditional Scottish cookie is glorious in all its simplicity. My kids could eat the whole batch for dinner with milk. The key here is the high quality of butter, soft at the consistency of mayonnaise. Also, always freeze your cookies before baking
