Mock-Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe by ghostlyvision
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 14 cookies




  • In large mixing bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles crumbs, add sugars and stir well (breaking up any brown sugar clumps), add eggs and mix until dough forms, stir in chocolate chips (and nuts, if desired).
  • Chill dough for one hour (and keep chilled while baking first batch).
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Put half of the dough on an ungreased baking sheet in 7 large balls, bake for 8 -10 minutes, turn cookie sheet around back to front, bake until light golden brown on top, another 5 - 8 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on sheet for a few minutes, then place on wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with the rest of the dough after cookie sheet cools. This should give you a very close approximation to the Levain Bakery chocolate chip cookies.
  • If you'd like to make them somewhat smaller I suggest using a 375 degree oven temp so they don't over-brown, though they may not rise quite as high.
