Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

12 TBSP butter, melted and cooled

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup white sugar

1 whole egg

1 egg yolk

2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups plus 2 TBSP flour

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 ½ cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars. Stir well. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well to combine. Gently stir in flour. Add chocolate chips and stir. Place eight to nine 2 TBSP sized spoonfuls of dough on cookie sheet, leaving plenty of room for spread. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown around the edges. DO NOT cook less than 15 minutes. These cookies taste better due to the longer baking I am convinced! Makes 16-18 cookies.

  1. When i watched my brothers kids, i didnt get paid, so i always asked for my sister-in-laws chocolate chip cookies, i always got in trouble beacuse i ate the whole container while they were gone. So Sarah when you need me to watch Keegan and Seely, you can pay me in cookies becasue these are just as good as Donna’s. thanks for the taste test.
