Best Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER recipe

Pin It
I was a baking fool yesterday. One of my beloved Friday night small group bible study folks has cancer. He is an awesome guy with an awesome family. He is facing a stem cell transplant and will not be getting paid during his time off. To help him through this time fundraising is being implemented to fill the gap. This morning there was a bake sale. Hence my baking foolery.

I made two 100% homemade apple pies. I would have made more if I had more flour. I had just a hair under two cups left and I wanted to whip else to donate to the bake sale. I remembered the cookies I had discovered last winter and dug out the recipe. These are thick and chewy yum yum chocolate chip cookies. I must admit that they don't hold over very well though and are best if gobbled up right away. It wont be hard to do it though, trust me!


2 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
12 tablespoons of butter: melted and cooled
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 1/2 cup of semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Then set them aside.
3. Cream the butter and sugar for 1 to 2 minutes. I use my kitchen aid mixer to do this you may have to do it a touch longer with a hand mixer.
4. Beat in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla for 30 seconds.
5. While your mixer is on add the flour, baking soda, and salt mixture.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Mine did fine at 15 minutes and I think I could have actually put them in for a little less. I wanted them a bit firmer than normal because of bagging them for the bake sale.

Try these. You will thank me or curse me for the wonderful evil thing I have taught you to make. Either way, enjoy!
