Jaay's Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies
· 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. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat (or grease the pan if you do not have either of these handy).
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt, and set aside.
Meanwhile, melt the butter. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk adding each ingredient one at a time and mixing until combined. Add the dry ingredients in thirds to the wet ingredients, and mix until combined. Over mixing will lead to tough cookies.
Using a 1/4 cup cookie scoop, drop the cookie dough onto the parchment-lined baking sheet at least two inches apart. (My baking sheet only holds 8 cookies since they're so big.)
Bake at 325 for 15-17 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Let cool on the pan for 1-2 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack. (Or, as we do, you can eat them right off the pan!)
Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
