  • 1 1/2 (180 g) cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (63 g) Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (156 g) dark corn syrup
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 tablespoons (169 g) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (99 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup (71 g) brown sugar, packed


  • Whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk corn syrup, egg white, and vanilla together until well-combined. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars together on medium until well-combined, about 2 minutes.
  • Add corn syrup mixture, and beat on low until well-combined, about 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Stir in flour until just incorporated. Cookie dough should look like thick brownie batter at this point.
  • Cover, and chill dough until firm, about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Scoop 1.5 tablespoon scoops of dough, and place on prepared baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8-11 minutes. Cookies will look set on the top and at the edges but will look underdone in the cracks.
  • Immediately remove from baking sheet and place on a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
