  • Author: Streusel
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes + overnight
  • Yield: 9 large cookies 1x


adapted from this recipe




8 T. unsalted butter, room temperature

1/4 c. sugar

1/4 c. brown sugar

1 large egg

1/2 c. sourdough starter discard

1/2 T. vanilla

1 c. all-purpose flour

3/4 t. salt

1/2 t. baking soda

1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Combine the butter and sugars and beat using a stand mixer on medium speed until fluffy.
  2. Add the sourdough discard, egg and vanilla and beat just until combined.
  3. Add in the flour, salt, baking soda and beat just until combined.
  4. Lastly add in the chips and beat on medium high speed briefly to incorporate the chips.
  5. Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight.
  6. The next day pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and using a 1/4 c. scoop, scoop out the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spacing about 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until starting to brown around the edges and let the entire parchment cool on a baking rack.
  8. I think they are best served at room temperature once the chocolate has set.
