"Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie"

I am in the baking mood this weekend – I think it is the fall weather that is making me want to bake. Anyway, tonight I made the “Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies” according to allrecipes.com and several other bloggers. We typically are big fans of the Pillsbury break and bake. HA! Lazy, maybe, but they are always so good!

The cookies I made tonight are pretty good. I liked them a lot and so did the kids – they were a little too cakey for Tommy, which is odd because a lot of the reviews on this recipe said that they were too flat. Who knows…anyway, I might do something different next time to make it not quite as cakey. They definitely are big and fat though. 🙂

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
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
