Best EVER Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted (NOT SOFTENED - MELTED)
1 c packed brown sugar - I used organic sugar
1/2 cup white sugar - I used Demarara
1 tbs vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips - I used Ghirardelli

Preheat the oven to 325
Grease cookie sheets, or line them with parchment paper
Sift the flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.
Mix the sugars and butter.
Add egg, the additional yolk and vanilla. Mix until creamy.
Add the sifted ingredients and mix until just blended.
Stir in the chocolate chips/chunks, then drop dough 1/4 cup at a time on a cookie sheet. I like 'em large!
Bake for 15 minutes.
Allow to cool

Welcome to my recipe blog

I just need a place to keep and comment on all of the recipes I find that I love, but forget about when it's dinner time ... or P-A-R-T-Y time.

So this is where I will keep them.

Comments are always welcome.
