Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I always use the recipe for choc. chip cookies on the back of whatever chocolate chips were on sale. They usually turn out fairly good and yummy. Well, I decided to go online and find another recipe and try it out. I will never go back! I love a big cookie, that is chewy on the inside, and just crisp enough to hold up to some milk. This one is awesome! Big bakery style cookies, I'm thinking good enough to mail away as gifts:) Try them!

2 cups all-purpose flour (I only had 1 3/4 cup all purpouse, and used the other 1/4 in whole wheat)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
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 by hand using a wooden spoon. (I put the dough in the freezer for about 15 mins to make it firm). Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets (I used a large ice cream scoop). Cookies should be about 3 inches apart. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted (Mine were good after only 13-14 mins, set your timer for 12 and check). Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Hey! That looks like my recipe that I formulated by accident one time and we have made it every time since. Only difference is I use 1/2 of brown sugar instead of a whole cup.
