Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wanted to make a really soft cookie with leftover chocolate chips and butter in the refrigerator. So chocolate chip cookies came to mind.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Step 2: Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 3: Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

Step 4: In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.

Step 5: Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy.

Step 6: Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.

Step 7: Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.

Step 8: Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes – 1 hour. (Optional)

Step 9: Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. (Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.)

Step 10: Bake for 20 -25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are golden brown.

Step 11: Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Note: If you don’t chill the dough the cookies won’t spread out as much
