Yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups All Purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Mix flour, baking soda and salt together in a bowl and set aside.

In another mixing bowl, combine melted butter (which has cooled), brown sugar and granulated sugar.

Mix together with electric mixer until well blended.

Add egg, yolk and vanilla to sugar mixture and beat until well blended.

Add flour mixture and beat at low speed just until mixture is combined.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Roll heaping 1/3 cup batter into a ball. Pull dough balls apart into 2 pieces and place on cookie sheet with the "jagged" edge of each piece facing up on cookie sheet.

Bake approximately 15-20 minutes on rack in middle of oven until cookies are light golden brown and you notice that the outer edges are starting to get firm. The center of each cookie should still be soft.

Let cookies cool on cookie sheets approximately 10 minutes and then transfer very carefully to wire racks to cool.

Yield: About 2 Dozen

Oh, and make sure that you have plenty of this on hand!
