These cookies are VERY good!!!!
Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (From: Americas Test Kitchen)
- 2 cups plus 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 12 Tbsp (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted & cooled until warm
- 1 c brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 c granulated sugar
- 1 large egg plus 1 yolk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Whisk dry ingredients together; set aside.
With electric mixer, or by hand, mix butter & sugars until thoroughly combined.
Beat in egg, yolk and vanilla until combined.
Add dry ingredients & beat at low speed just until combined. Stir in chips.
Roll scant 1/2 cup dough into ball. Holding dough ball in fingertips of both hands, pull into 2 equal halves. Rotate halves 90 degrees and, with jagged surfaces facing up, place formed dough onto cookie sheet, leaving ample room between each ball.
Bake, reversing position of cookie sheets halfway through baking, until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft & puffy (about 17 minutes in my oven).
Cool cookies on sheets until able to lift without breaking and place on wire rack to cool.
