- 2 1/2 (11.25 ounces) cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into cubes and frozen
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup (6 ounces) milk chocolate chips
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Pulse one or two times to combine. Add the cubes of butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. You can also use a hand held pastry blender.
In a liquid measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together the honey, milk, and vanilla. Add the mixture to the food processor and pulse until a soft dough begins to form. Remove to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips. Shape the dough into a flat disk and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Using a 1 1/2-tablespoon scoop, drop balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing at least 2 inches apart. Flatten dough balls with the bottom of a measuring cup.
Bake for about 12 minutes, or until the edges are browned. Let the cookies cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
