KILLER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
WHEN I DON'T WANT TO WAIT 24 HOURS FOR A NY TIMES COOKIE (MY MOST FAVE!) THEN THESE ARE MY GO TO COOKIES! OTHERWISE KNOWN AS KILLER CHOCOLATE CHIPS!
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 sticks soft butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup regular sugar
1 T. vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
1 cup NESTLE semisweet chips plus 1 cup bittersweet Ghiradhelli chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment.
Beat butter and both sugars until well blended. Add in vanilla, egg and yolk until light and creamy. Add in flour, salt and baking soda just until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips by hand. Chill if you have time but not necessary!!!
Drop by 1/4cup amounts onto parchment. Mine baked 14-16 minutes ...until edges are browned and centers no longer look wet. Press a few more chips into the hot cookies and let cool completely on sheets.
