Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies

Calling for rye flour instead of all-purpose, these chocolate chip cookies are not your ordinary batch. The rye flour lends a nutty complexity to balance the chocolate. And while any chocolate will work in this recipe, dark chocolate is a great match for the rye. A combination of light and dark brown sugar also adds richness and chew beneath the slightly crisp exterior.

  1. Step 1

    Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugars. Stir in the egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder and salt, and mix until thoroughly combined. Lastly, mix in the chocolate.
  3. Step 3

    Portion the cookie dough into balls slightly larger than 3 tablespoons (each about 2 ½ ounces/70 grams). Roll each with your hand and place the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the balls at least 2 inches apart. Press gently into a puck about 1-inch thick.
  4. Step 4

    Sprinkle the cookies with some sea salt and, working with one batch at a time, bake until the cookies have spread and are browned on the bottom, 10 to 12 minutes. Repeat with remaining batch. Let cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet before transferring cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
