Does anything feel better than a warm, chewy, chocolate chip cookie? If you like big, substantial, dense, and a bit chewy chocolate chip cookie, then this recipe is for you.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 sticks salted butter
- 1 packed cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 large egg (room temp)
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Start by preheating your oven to 325.
Sift 2 cup flour and 1/2 tsp baking soda together, set aside.
Melt 3/5 cup (or 1 1/2 sticks) of salted butter. Add to 1 packed cup brown sugar, and 1 cup white sugar. Blend until smooth. Add 1 large egg (room temp is best if you can) and an extra egg yoke (no egg white). Blend into butter/sugar mixture. Add 1 tablespoon vanilla, blend until smooth.
Slowly add sifted flour/baking soda into butter/sugar mixture a little bit at a time. Do NOT over mix, it will make your dough tough. Once the flour is well combined stop mixing.
Gently fold in 1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (mini chips are my personal favorite) with a spoon.
On a greased cookie sheet form cookie dough balls 1/4-1/3 cup size and space at least 3 inches apart- these babies spread out.
Bake 15-17 minutes, or until the edges start to get crispy brown color. Careful not to overcook- you’ll lose the gooey/chewy effect.
Pour a giant glass of cold milk or brew a hot cup of cocoa and try not to eat them all in one day ;)
