chocolate chip shortbread cookie

The easiest cookie recipe ever! These chocolate chip shortbread cookies are buttery, crispy, and loaded with chocolate.




  1. Place the butter and brown sugar into the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on low speed until combined. Make sure not to overbeat the butter.
  2. Next, add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter/sugar mixture. Beat until just combined.
  3. Add the flour and salt to the rest of the ingredients in the mixing bowl and mix on low speed until a dough forms. (The dough will crumbly.)
  4. Finally, add the chopped chocolate and mix on low speed until it is evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  5. Transfer the dough onto a work surface and shape it into a log, about 2-2 1/2 inches in diameter. Tightly wrap the log in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Unwrap the chilled log and slice it into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Place the sliced cookies onto the prepared baking sheets, about 1 inch apart. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies will harden as they cool.
