CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!!!



well, i needed some baking therapy tonight and i decided to try some yummy looking chocolate chip cookies that i saw over at baking sheet.

unfortunately, i was on the phone with mike was i was making them therefore, i added both eggs whole instead of one whole egg and one egg yolk. i don't know if that contributed to the fact that my cookies look completely different than hers or not.

they are still very yummy!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
(thanks to the Best Recipe)
2 cups plus 2 tbsp ap flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter (12 tbsp), melted and cooled until just warm
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk together butter and sugars. Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture, followed by chocolate chips.
Drop by (scant) 1/4 cups onto the baking sheet and pat lightly so the cookie is an even thickness, not a ball shape. Cookies will spread as they bake and this ensures a more even spread.
Bake at 325F for 15-17 minutes, until just turning light brown all over. The edges should only be very slightly more brown, if at all, from the rest of the cookie. Allow cookies to cool before removing them from the baking sheet.
Makes 18-24 large cookies

I am actually making cookies tonight. I just sat down to read some blogs and take a break and here you are with a great recipe. I like that site, as well.
I love all the cute things you got for christmas things!! so cute. I have got to get some things...but if I order them or shop too early, I always end up giving them to the kids, so I have to time it just right...
