Levain Cookie Experimentations

Author Recipe very slightly adjusted from the amazing Modern Honey!


  • 1 cup Kerrygold butter cold and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • cups cake flour
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups 70% Guittard chocolate chips
  • 2 cups walnuts roughly chopped


  • Preheat oven to 410 degrees.
  • In large mixing bowl, cream together cold cubed butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 4 minutes or until creamy.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one, then the vanillas.
  • Stir in flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  • Use a 2.66oz cookie scoop to scoop dough into large balls and place on lightly colored cookie sheet. You should be able to get 15 cookies, and I recommend baking them 5 to a cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown on the top. Let cookies rest for at least 10 minutes before eating.
