Recipe Time: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com about 2 years ago and it has become my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe.  It's the best one I've found over the years.  They're soft in the center and crunchy around the edges...so delicious!


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I only use about 1 1/2 cups because I don't like as many chips)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, sugar and brown sugar until well blended.  Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla until light and creamy.  Mix in the sifted ingredients a 1/3 at a time until just blended.  Stir in the chocolate chips by  hand.  Drop about a tablespoon of cookie dough at a time onto the prepared cookie sheet about three inches apart.

Bake for about 12-16 minutes depending on oven or until edges are lightly browned.  Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

I bet you'll love 'em too  Enjoy!!
