2 cups Wheat flour, white, all-purpose, enriched, bleached
½ teaspoon Leavening agents, baking soda
½ teaspoon Salt, table
¾ cup Butter, without salt
1 cup Sugars, brown
½ cup Sugars, granulated
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
1 Egg, whole, raw, fresh
1 Egg, yolk, raw, fresh
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Step 2 – Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
Step 3 – 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. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
Step 4 – 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.
Baker’s Note: These have become my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have added nuts and bacon to the recipe (not at the same time..haha.) I recently used salted caramel chips and the result was delicious!
