Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated on December 5, 2011

Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cups (2 sticks) unsalted butter

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons firmly packed dark brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 large whole egg

1 large egg yolk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups semisweet or dark chocolate chips

1 cup toasted walnuts or pecans (optional)


In saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, then pour into large mixing bowl. Let cool to room temperature.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda.

When butter has cooled, add both sugars and whisk or beat until combined. Mix or beat in egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix until only a little flour is visible. Add chocolate chips and nuts, if using, and mix to incorporate thorougly. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 30 to 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place golf-ball-size mounds of dough on silicone or parchment-lined baking sheet 3 inches apart. Flatten slightly with palm of hand.

Bake in preheated oven until cookies are golden brown and no longer look wet, 12 to 15 minutes.

Let cookies cool on baking sheet about 5 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack.

Variations: Use white chocolate chips instead and macadamia nuts; a combination of white and dark chocolate chips; M & M's; raisins instead of chocolate chips plus 1 cup rolled oats; or another dried fruit such as dried cranberries.

      Hi Seeker7! Chocolate chip cookies are one of my downfalls, especially homemade right out of the oven. Almost like Lays Potato Chips ... you can't eat just one! Give it a try ... you too will be hooked (if you aren't already!) You're welcome and have a great day! :-)
