Chocolate Chip Cookies
Another recipe I have searched long and hard for, the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Taking the best parts of different recipes, this result takes 1st place with the amazing flavor, slightly crunchy outer layer and deliciously gooey inside.
2 cups 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 (Tablespoon, not teaspoon!)
1 egg yolk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 335 Degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Sift flour, baking soda and salt, set aside.
Cream melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in vanilla, egg (and extra yolk) until creamy.
Mix in dry ingredients until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto your baking sheets about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 23 minutes or until edges start to turn golden. Let cool on pan for 2 minutes before removing onto racks or paper towels.
