These look like bakery cookies!


2 cups All purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup Unsalted butter
1 cup Brown sugar; packed
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
1 Egg
1 Egg yolk
2 cups Semisweet chocolate chips

Original recipe makes 16



Preheat your oven to 325? Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Sift together flour, baking soda & salt; set aside.

In medium bowl, cream together the melted butter and sugars until well blended. Beat in vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light & creamy.

Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Fold in chocolate chips by hand.

Drop dough onto cookie sheets (approx 1/4 cup), about 3 inches apart.

Bake for 15-17 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheets for a couple minutes before moving to wire cooling rack. I place a tea towel over the wire racks and put the cookies on top of the towel. The cookies seem to stay softer this way.

Amazing! They look great every time and stay so soft! Perfect cookies. I've made them over & over the past few weeks, a fiancée and family favorite

I absolutely love this recipe. Just as its written. The dough itself is amazing. I could happily eat it without baking it. And the baked cookies are perfectly chocolaty and delicious.
