Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
Yesterday Brandon asked if we could make some chocolate chip cookies. I should have known that all he really wanted was the dough. I found this recipe on Allrecipes and it definitely lives up to its name. It is so soft and chewy and doesn't go flat like other recipes. I bet you can't stop with just one!
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 yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I always use milk chocolate)
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 by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
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.
