 The recipe:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1egg
  • 1egg yolk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

I have this recipe written down on a scrap of paper that is covered in miscellaneous baking ingredients from over the years. So, bare with I always double this recipe. It makes about 14 HUGE cookies.

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • Grease your cookie sheets or line them with parchment paper. (I ALWAYS use parchment for baking)
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt then set aside in a small bowl
  • In a medium bowl or your mixer fitted with the paddle, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until blended.
  • Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. (really blend them for a few minutes, you will see the color start to lighten)
  • Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.(making sure you scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl)
  • Mix in the chocolate chips until just incorporated. (you can always give it an extra mix with a spoon)
  • Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets.  (make sure there is at least 3 inches of space between) **I use a ¼ cup ice cream scoop – DO NOT FLATTEN THE COOKIES, they will spread out while baking.
  • Bake for 17 to 22 minutes, until the edges are lightly toasted.
  • Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

There are a lot of variations you can try with this recipe as well.. I have made them with, coconut, white chocolate chips and candied pineapple. Toffee chips and chocolate chips. I have tried craisins, pistachios and white chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless. Just keep your additions to 2 cups in total.

These cookies store well, but as an extra tip to keep them fresh, add a slice of bread to your cookie jar. It will keep them soft and chewy longer.

Give them a try, and let us know what you think!

  4. Thanks for the recipe. I love chocolate chip cookies. Especially if they’re soft. I always under cook mine just a tad to make sure they are.

    • These are the BEST! I may make some this weekend. They freeze up really nice too or you can throw some ice cream in the middle of 2 and make a ice cream sandwich. YUM!
