Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
These are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tasted! It is a little unusual in that you melt the butter and use a lot more vanilla. We found it on the internet at allrecipes.com a few years ago and we have been using it ever since. Enjoy!
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup melted butter
- 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 oven to 325 and grease cookie sheets
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together melted butter and sugars. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto prepared cookie sheet about 3 inches apart.
Bake 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on racks and enjoy!
