2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter (melted and cooled)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
1/2 cups chips
Preheat oven to 325°F and line cookie trays.
Combine and sift flour, baking soda and salt.
Cream together the butter and sugars in a separate bowl. Then add in the vanilla, the egg, the yolk and mix until light and creamy. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until just belended. Stir in the chips by hand. At this point I chilled the dough for about 24 hours, because I had to pick the kids up from school and because I had read this ensures chewiness. The following day I put the cookies about 3 inches apart on the trays and made a few larger batches and a few smaller ones. I baked the larger ones for about 15-17 minutes as suggested. I baked the smaller batches for approximately 10 minutes. Let them cool on tray and then cookies rack.
I don't know if the variations in sugar amounts (I used packed brown sugar and normal brown sugar and less white sugar than called for because I was at the end of all three packs) or the chilling were the culprits of my not-as-chunky cookies. But they were scrumptuous anyway.
Oh, by the way, I was in such a rush to go out and enjoy my day to myself on Friday (which I did, although once again 99% of my shopping was kid-oriented...why is that?) that I didn't realize I was publishing my 100th post. Have I actually made 100 different recipes in the past months? Did I actually write 100 hundred stories about my cooking adventures and life? I just wanted to thank you all for sticking around and joining in on the fun, for reading, for commenting, for supporting me.
