THE best chocolate chip cookies

'I Can't Believe I Just Ate the WHOLE Thing'
Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of my friends brought these to a party at our house and I emailed her right away NEEDING the recipe! They were absolutely heavenly, HUGE, and I definitely ate more than one - oops!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda *I use a heaping 1/2 teaspoon*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop cookie dough a 1/4 cup *yes, you read that right, a QUARTER CUP* at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
  • Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely *I just transfer mine to paper or a paper towel*. Yields 18 cookies.
