Good food is good for the soul, and the holidays and good food tend to go hand in hand. If we’re fortunate enough to treat ourselves or our loved ones (or both!) to a memorable meal this season, there’s nothing like capping it off with a sweet treat (everything in moderation, of course!). #AerieREAL Role Model Iskra has just the chocolate chip cookies recipe to add a crowd-pleasing confection to your holiday snacks. 

With a name like “gooey glorious grand cookies” it has to be tasty, right?! Watch as Iskra walks us through the full baking directions in the video below, showing us how to make the yummy Levain Bakery-inspired cookies in our own kitchen.  

Iskra’s Gooey Glorious Grand Holiday Cookies 


1 cup cold butter cut in small cubes 

1 cup brown sugar 

½ cup sugar 

2 eggs 

3 cups all purpose flour 

1 tsp cornstarch 

¾ tsp baking soda 

¾ tsp salt 

2 cups chocolate chips 

1 tsp vanilla essence 


Preheat oven to 410 degrees Fahrenheit. Cream butter and sugars together; add eggs one by one, add vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Gradually add dry mix into wet mix, without overmixing. Add in chocolate chips. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the mixture onto a baking tray. Bake for nine minutes. Let cool, then enjoy!
