Zoe François Chocolate Chip Cookies

Zoe François Chocolate Chip Cookies

While watching the "Zoe Bakes" show recently, she made these delectable nuggets of joy and I had try them. The chocolate I used I found on Amazon and it is spectacular!! I served these cookies at recent "Granny Camp" gathering I hosted and everyone loved them. Not hard to make and they are sure to Wow your crowd too.


  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperture
  • 4 tbsp shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, room temperture
  • 12 ounces chocolate chopped into large chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 375°
  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
  • In a stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter on medium speed until light and fluffy, then add the shortening until evenly mixed in. Add sugars and beat for 3 minutes on medium speed. Mix in vanilla. Add eggs one at a time and mix on medium-low speed just until incorporated. Add flour mix until just incorporated. Mix in chocolate. Scoop cookie dough using a portion scoop, I used a 3 ounce scoop. You can make the cookies larger or smaller, but it effect the baking time.
  • Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes if you are in a hurry, but they improve if you let them sit for 24-36 hours. Resting them will make them taste better, be more uniform in shape and color nicely when they bake.
  • Bake 6 chilled cookie balls, evenly spaced on a sheet pan in the middle of the oven for about 12- 15 minutes. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt while the cookies are still baking. Do it when they are almost set but not done baking.
  • Allow the cookies to cool slightly on the pan and then remove to cooling rack.
