by Gail Nagele-Hopkins. makes 1 1/2 dozen 3-inch cookies You can substitute white, milk chocolate, or peanut butter chips for the semi- or bittersweet chips called for in the recipe. In addition to chips, you can flavor the dough with one cup of nuts, raisins, or shredded coconut. 1. Heat oven to 325 F. Adjust oven racks to upper- and lower-middle positions. Mix flour, salt, and baking soda together in medium bowl; set aside. 2. Either by hand or with electric mixer, mix butter and sugars until thoroughly blended. Mix in egg, yolk, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients; mix until just combined. Stir in chips to taste. 3. Form scant 1/4 cup dough into ball. Holding dough ball using fingertips of both hands, pull into two equal halves. Rotate halves ninety degrees and, with jagged surfaces exposed, join halves together at their base, again forming a single cookie, being careful not to smooth doughs uneven surface. Place formed dough onto one of two parchment paper-lined 20-by-14- inch lipless cookie sheets, about nine dough balls per sheet. Smaller cookies sheets can be used, but fewer cookies can be baked at one time and baking time may need to be adjusted. (The more cookies in the oven, the longer they will take to bake.) (Dough can be refrigerated up to 2 days or frozen up to one month - shaped or not.) 4. Bake, reversing cookie sheets positions halfway through baking, until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft and puffy, 15 to 18 minutes (start checking at 13 minutes.) (Frozen dough requires an extra 1 to 2 minutes baking time.) Cool cookies on cookie sheets. Serve or store in airtight container.

This is a very good cookie; however, in in one copy of the recipe there is no flour ordered, but it is in the instructions. Add 2 1/8 cups of all purpose flour to the ingredient list.
