It’s a cloudy day here (I adore cloudy days!) and I couldn’t think of anything better to do than curl up, watch a movie, and stuff myself with chocolate chip cookies. Here’s the best recipe I have ever made (adapted from this recipe).
- 2 cups + 2 T all-purpose flour
- 1/2 t. baking soda
- 1/2 t. salt
- 12 T unsalted butter (melted and cooled until warm
- 1 c. packed brown sugar
- 1/2 granulated sugar
- 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
- 2 t. vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Prepare a greased cookie sheet.
Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.
Mix the butter and sugars until thoroughly blended. Beat in the egg, yolk, and vanilla until combined. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed just until combined. Stir in the chips.
Roll about a tablespoon of dough into a ball. Place the formed dough balls on the prepared baking sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake until the cookies are light gold brown and the outer edges start to harden and the centers are soft and puffy, about 10-13 minutes. Cool the cookies on the sheet for about 3 minutes. Move the cooled cookies from the baking sheets to the cookie rack.
Grab a big ol’ glass of milk and eat up. Out of the 33 I made, I have about 3 left; I’ll go running when it’s sunny.
*According to other bloggers, the dough freezes really well.
