  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter discard
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

    1. Beat together the room temperature butter and both the brown sugar and white granulated sugar.
    2. Add in the egg and mix to combine.
    3. Stir in the sourdough starter and vanilla extract.
    4. Add in the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir until just combined, do not over mix.
    5. Stir in the chocolate chips.
    6. Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
    7. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
    8. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
    9. Scoop the cookie dough onto the baking mats about 2-3" apart. I use a cookie scoop that is about 2 to 3 Tablespoons of dough.
    10. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are starting to turn golden and the tops are set.
    11. Remove the baking tray from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes.
    12. Remove the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling all the way.
    13. Enjoy!
