These are by far THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES you will EVER have.
Seriously beautiful cookies.
Give them a try and call yourself Martha freekin Stewart!
You will never need another recipe for chocolate chip cookies.
Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
* 2 cups plus 2 tbsp flour
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 12 tbsp (one stick) melted, then cooled to warm BUTTER
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
* 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
* 2 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Adjust oven racks to middle positions.
Preheat to 325 degrees C.
Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk dry ingredients (excluding sugars) in a bowl and set aside.
Mix butter and sugars until combined. Add egg and extra yolk and vanilla.
Add wet and dry and mix until just combined. Add chocolate chips.
Roll into balls the size of a golf ball and spread evenly on your cookie sheet.
Place in the oven and rotate the cookie sheet 180 half way through. I bake mine for 12 mins and rotate at the 6 minute mark.
Bake until slightly brown on the edges and let cool on a wire rack (11-14mins depending on your oven).
Don't overbake these babies! They are meant to be soft and chewy in the middle.
Thanks to Annie's Eats for this recipe. I did some tweaking but am grateful for so many of her delicious ideas.
