Serves 18 | Prep Time 10 min. | Cook Time 15 min.

Ingredients

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 chips


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.

Notes

"These cookies are the pinnacle of perfection! If you want a big, fat, chewy cookie like the kind you see at bakeries and specialty shops, then these are the cookies for you!"

Baked these off of Allrecipies.com SO AMAZING, if i do say so myself. The only chocolate chip cookies I make anymore! They are good if you mix half peanut butter chips in, or some peanuts or walnuts too :)

The extra egg yolk certainly makes this different. I will have to try this recipe, sounds like the perfect cookie for my husband.
