The other night I didn't have all the ingredients to make my usual go-to Chocolate Chip Cookies, so I had to find a different recipe (as cookies were a must on this given night). I found this new recipe and I ended up liking them more than my own recipe...
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups + 2 tbsp flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ sticks butter, melted and cooled
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
Set oven to 325 F.
Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Beat together butter and sugars for 1 minute at medium speed. Add eggs and vanilla and beat on medium-low for 30 seconds. Add dry ingredients and mix on low for 30 seconds. Stir in chocolate chips.
Divide dough into 1/4 cup size balls. Pull apart dough into equal halves with fingers then place back together so that jagged side faces top and smooth side is facing down. This creates the bakery look on top.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes on ungreased cookie sheets. Take out when edges are hardening but centers still look puffy and soft, cool on pan.
Makes about 18 cookies
