Mmm mmm good

I found this recipe over on my friend Morgan's blog, and she's right - it is the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe!  Quick and easy to make and chewy to the bite, this recipe is perfect for a day like today, when there's 10 inches of snow on the ground keeping us housebound!  

2 cups all-purpose flour
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 semi-sweet 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. Don't overmix.
  • 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.

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.  Eat several with a tall glass of milk :)
