Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is a perfect recipe for a classic chocolate chip cookie!
They came out great and I will definitely be making these again!
2 cup plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
12 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled until warm
1 cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Adjust oven racks to upper and lower-middle positions. Preheat oven to 325°. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium bowl; set aside. Mix butter and sugars until thoroughly combined. Beat in egg, yolk and vanilla until combined. Add dry ingredients and beat at low-speed just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Roll a scant half-cup of dough into a ball. Holding dough ball in fingertips of both hands, pull apart into two equal halves. Place each piece on the cookie sheet with the jagged surfaces facing up with plenty of room between each cookie.
Bake, reversing positions of cookie sheets halfway through. Bake until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft and puffy, about 11-14 minutes. Do not over bake. Cool cookies on sheets until able to lift without breaking. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
