Salted Maple Chocolate Chips Cookies

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring such as McCormick
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 ½ 12-oz pkg milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp flaky sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cream butter and light brown sugar on medium speed with a mixer until combined and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; mix until just combined.
  • Whisk together flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. Add half of flour mixture to the butter mixture. Mix on low speed until just combined, and then medium speed until completely combined. Repeat with second half of flour mixture.
  • Fold in one package of chocolate chips.
  • Using a cookie scoop (I used a 2 tablespoon scoop), scoop dough onto the prepared baking sheet, arranging 2-inches apart. Press about 5 to 6 additional chocolate chips onto the top of each ball of dough.
  • Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until crisp around the edges. Remove from oven and sprinkle with sea salt. Let cookies cool on pans for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Enjoy!
