  • 1 cup (125 grams ) all purpose flour
  • ½ cup (64 grams) organic medium white rye flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon fresh rosemary minced
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ Cup (113 grams) unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 Cup (200 grams) dark brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Bourbon
  • 1 cup (175 grams) dark chocolate chopped into small pieces


  • Hand whisk together flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cardamom, cinnamon, and rosemary in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment or large bowl and a hand mixer beat the butter and dark brown sugar until a paste is formed. Medium speed about 1-3 minutes. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl as needed.
  • Add egg, yolk, vanilla, and bourbon to creamed butter and sugar. Mix until incorporated.
  • Add flour a ⅓ at a time until mixed.
  • Fold in chocolate chunks with a wooden spoon.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in fridge to chill for minimum 2 hrs. I prefer to let my cookie dough chill for 8-12 hours for a richer flavor.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F (176 C). Line two large rimmed cookies sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  • Scoop 1.5 Tablespoon balls of cold cookie dough onto room temperature trays. Bake one tray at time. There should be 9 cookies dough balls per tray and space them 1-2 inches apart. Keep the rest of the dough in the fridge until ready to bake.
  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until edges start look dark and crisp.
  • Remove sheets from oven, hold about 4 inches from counter and bang cookie sheet on counter to deflate and crinkle cookies.
  • Place cookie sheet onto cooling rack for 10 minutes. Cookies will finish baking as they cool.
  • Remove cookies from sheet and place directly onto cooling rack.
  • Eat and enjoy!
