Adapted from AllRecipes...a BIG cookie... soft and chewy. I like to chill my cookie dough before baking. So, I chose to do the same with this recipe. Chilling the dough eliminates too much spreading, resulting in flatter cookies. These cookies came out looking wonderful... thick and chewy. Very presentable.

"Awesome cookies!! Made them last night my kid loved them and my husband who doesn't like chocolate chip cookies even ate one.. Love it !!"

Are you making this? 
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter; melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chip

Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon.

Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
