Happy Thursday everyone! Its not quite Friday and its not mid-week either. Its that day of the week where you are almost there but just not quite. I knew I'd need a pick-me-up for today so I made THESE yesterday. Sugar usually does the trick (temporarily, atleast)...
You will need:
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 yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used the mini kind because they are cute)
To make them:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and grease your cookie sheets
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt;
In a another 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 like this:
Mix in the dry ingredients until just blended, don't over mix or you'll get flat cookies:
Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon - like I mentioned before I used the "mini" ones:
Drop cookie dough by a large/heaping tablespoon at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart because they will spread.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
