A friend came over to hang out today and we decided to bake chocolate chip cookies. I decided to try to search for the quintessential "perfect chocolate chip cookie". I found a recipe for "Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie" on allrecipes.com and it sure does live up to the name! I did tweak it a little bit. The recipe below includes the revisions.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325°. Line cookie sheets 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. Cover dough and chill for at least 1 hour.
Drop chilled 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.
Recipe makes approximately 16 cookies.
