Every time i make these i am thankful i was introduced to Good Things Catered (which sadly is no longer available) and consequently the blogging world.
Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Good Things Catered, also on good eats and sweet treats
2 C. All-purpose flour
1/2 Tsp Baking soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
3/4 C. Unsalted Butter, Melted and cooled.
1 C. Packed brown sugar
1/2 C. Granulated sugar
1 1/4 Tbs Vanilla Extract*
1 Egg yolk
2 C. (or 120z) Semisweet chocolate chips
* Feel free to leave it at 1 Tbs. of vanilla (as used in the GTC recipe) i usually add a little extra, about 1/4 tbs but i usually just eyeball it.
Melt butter, allow to cool. Bring eggs to room temperature (if short on time, set them in a bowl of warm water), preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease cookie sheets or line with parchment.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a medium bowl mix together the melted butter, and sugars until well blended and creamy. beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. then add in the dry ingredients in small batches, scraping bowl as needed. Mix in the chocolate chips using a wooden spoon.
Drop cookie dough on to prepared cookie sheets in 1/4 C. increments (look to good eats and sweet treats for a demo on how to portion dough). about 2 inches apart. Bake for 15-17 minutes for larger cookies and about 12-15 for smaller ones (keep an eye on them). Serve with a tall glass of milk over ice cream or just by themselves. Enjoy!!
