Small Batch Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies



We found this recipe on All Recipes. Dan has been looking for a chewy chocolate chip cookie for a long time. They are quite good, crispy on the edges and soft and chewy inside. We think it is the melted butter that makes the difference.

INGREDIENTS

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
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.



3. In a medium 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. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.





4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 15 large cookies

i found this recipe on allrecipes a long time ago and have made it several times... when i use this recipe, my cookies don't turn out so plump... maybe b/c i am using my medium cookie scoop and not the 1/4 cup portion as directed in the recipe....?

the 1/4 cup measure will make them plump....these were thick..I pushed them down a bit on the 2nd batch...
let me know if it works better using the 1/4 cup of batter.
