Most of us in Birmingham know and love The Breakup Cookie® from Church Street, so our team decided it was about time to try and make them ourselves. Rather than get out and gather our ingredients at the grocery store, we ordered from Kroger Delivery and it was oh-so easy. Keep reading to see our attempt at the beloved cookies and get the recipe so you can try them too.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jacques Torres, David Leite
Recipe from The New York Times
Total Time 45 mins
Course Dessert
Servings 1.5 dozen

Ingredients
  

  • 8 1/2 ounces cake flour
  • 1 2/3 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp coarse salt
  • 1 1/4 cups unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
  • 8 ounces granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 lbs bittersweet chocolate disks
  • sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Reduce speed to low, add dry ingredients and mix until just combined, 5 to 10 seconds. Drop chocolate pieces in and incorporate them without breaking them. Press plastic wrap against dough and refrigerate for 24 to 36 hours. Dough may be used in batches, and can be refrigerated for up to 72 hours.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Set aside.
  • Scoop 6 3½-ounce mounds of dough (the size of generous golf balls) onto baking sheet, making sure to turn horizontally any chocolate pieces that are poking up; it will make for a more attractive cookie. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and bake until golden brown but still soft, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer sheet to a wire rack for 10 minutes, then slip cookies onto another rack to cool a bit more. Repeat with remaining dough, or reserve dough, refrigerated, for baking remaining batches the next day.

The hardest part of the entire process was waiting until the cookies were cool enough to eat.
