Eden Yerushalmi’s Chocolate Chip Cookies


200 grams of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 eggs
3 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
300 grams (3 bars) of milk chocolate
100 grams (1 bar) of white chocolate (you can substitute some or all with dark chocolate if preferred)
A pinch of coarse salt


Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius (340 degrees Fahrenheit).

Chop all the chocolate and set it aside in a bowl.

Melt the butter and mix it with the sugar (both brown and white) and the eggs (it’s recommended to mix at this stage with a whisk). Add the flour and baking soda and mix until you get a soft dough. Then add most of the chocolate (or all of it).

Form balls of dough and place them with space between them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate over the top of each ball, along with a few grains of coarse salt on each one (this enhances the flavor!).

Bake for 8-10 minutes. After baking, allow them to cool slightly and settle, then enjoy!
