  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Cookie Sheet
  • parchment paper


  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter partially melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper or a silicone baking liner.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together partially melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.
  • Beat in vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy.
  • Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Gently fold in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon.
  • Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup (yes, these are BIG cookies) at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 to 14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are just starting to turn a golden brown.
  • Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.


  • I know that it seems strange to add an egg AND and egg yolk, but eggs are a CRUCIAL part of a chocolate chip cookie!
