Best Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

With a title like that I was a little nervous to make these. This is an all star recipe on The Nest, I have never made them no reason just never have. We are having a BBQ tomorrow and I am making ice cream sandwiches, I thought these would be perfect. These are good. Defiantly Big and Chewy. My changes are in italics.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (From: Allrecipes)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (I omitted as Adam accidentally grabbed salted butter last time, it's finally gone!!!)
  • 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 (I used 1 1/2 c. per suggestions)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. (I also stuck them in the freezer to cool per suggestions)

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. (I refrigerated until cool bout 10 minutes)

Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup (I used my cookie scoop and double the scooper) 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
