I kept hearing about this one recipe for "Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies." If nothing else, they sound dang good. I'm a big fan of recipes that just - SAY it. And these cookies live up to their name, my friend. I became one with my inner fat kid when these came out of the oven.
The Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie (makes about a dozen)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 TB vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well-blended. Beat in vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips by hand, using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto prepared cookie sheet. Cookies should be about 3" apart.
