Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 cup Unsalted butter slightly cold
  • 1 ¼ cups Brown sugar packed light or dark
  • ¼ cup White granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 2 ¾ cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 8 oz Semi-sweet chocolate bars I used Lindt 70% chopped.
  • ½ cup White granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Ground cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • Pull the butter out for 45 minutes to 1 hour. It will be slightly cold, but not very soft like at room temperature.
    1 cup Unsalted butter
  • In a mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, salt, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Set aside.
    2 ¾ cup All-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon Baking soda, ½ teaspoon Salt, 1 teaspoon Cornstarch, 1 ½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • Using a mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Beat on high for 2 minutes. Scrape the bowl and add in vanilla and eggs. Mix on medium-high for1 minutes. It will be very fluffy in texture.
    1 ¼ cups Brown sugar, ¼ cup White granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon Pure vanilla extract, 2 Large eggs
  • Add in the dry ingredients. Mix on low until just combined.
  • Chill for 30 minutes. If the dough is too soft to roll, freeze for 15 minutes. Line two cookies sheets with parchment paper. Scoop the dough using a 3oz cookie scoop. The cookie dough balls needs to be right at 3oz. If there is too much like 3.3oz it will spread too much.
    8 oz Semi-sweet chocolate bars
  • Flatten into a disc using your hand. Top with a heaping amount of chocolate. See above photo. Roll back into a ball.
  • Mix together sugar and cinnamon. Roll the cookie balls into the cinnamon sugar. Chill for another 30 minutes.
    ½ cup White granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon Ground cinnamon
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake 6 cookies at a time for 13-15 minutes. The cookies are done when the edges are slightly golden. The middle will be slightly under done.
  • Let the cookies sit on the hot pan for 5 minutes. Then, rub each warm cookie in the cinnamon sugar. Cool on a wire rack.

Notes

Flour- Make sure flour is spooned and leveled or use a kitchen scale. Compacted flour can dry out the cookies.
High altitude baking- Add an extra 2 tablespoon of flour.
