Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite foods. Kind of ironic for a girl who shouldn't eat sugar. Every holiday I am allowed to "cheat" and eat sugar so I make a batch of cookies for every holiday. (No, I do not make up holidays when I am craving my cookies. :)) This recipe is my go to recipe and I have yet to find one that taste better. Any type of chocolate goes well inside. Last time I added a Symphony candy bar with some milk chocolate chips....dangerously good. Please note I finally took my own pictures of the food and you can see why I don't like to...I'm not good at it. Oh well, try these and you will never use another recipe again.
Oversized Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies (from Worldwide ward cookbook Secret Recipes)
2 C flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 C butter, slightly melted or softened
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extra
1 egg yolk
2 C. chocolate chips (any kind or any candy!)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together; set aside. Mix softened butter, brown sugar, and sugar until well blended. Add vanilla, egg, and egg yolk and mix until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture and stir until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop cookie dough 1/4 C. at a time (or use big cookie scoop) onto cookie sheet. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Makes about 32 cookies. Do not overcook!! I usually pull them out before they look all the way done.
