  • Total Time: 32 minutes + 2 hours chill time


Perfect chocolate chip cookies that are crispy on the edges and gooey in the middle and STUFFED! Cookie butter, Nutella, Almond Butter, or Marshmallow Fluff. Better make all 4 versions to be safe. 


  • 2 Sticks Salted Butter
  • 1/2 C Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 C Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Lg Egg, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 C + 2 TBSP All Purpose Flour
  • 1 C Bread Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 C Chocolate Chips + 1 Chocolate Baking Bar (I used 1/2 C Dark choc chips, 1/2 C semi-sweet choc chips, and 1 Semi Sweet Baking Bar
  • 1/2 C Filling of your choice (nutella, cookie butter, peanut butter, almond butter, marshmallow fluff, etc…)


  • In a medium sauce pan, lightly brown butter. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment, combine chilled brown butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Mix on medium for 5 minutes.
  • Add egg and vanilla, mix to combine.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the mixer 1/2 at a time. Do not over mix.
  • Chop the chocolate bar leaving some big chunks and some smaller shards. Save back some of the chocolate to press onto the top of the cookies just before baking. Fold the rest into the dough.
  • Chill dough for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Scoop dough into your hands, flatten it out, and make a well in the center.
  • Place about 1 tsp of filling into the well, then fold the edges over to seal it up. Form into balls, then press down slightly onto a cookie sheet. I baked 6 per sheet.
  • Bake at 350 for 12-13 minutes, then allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes. Top with flaky salt.


  • If you do not have bread flour, you can use all AP flour. But promise me that at some point you will buy bread flour and follow the recipe exactly. The bread flour gives you the extra chewy factor that make these cookies perfect.
