Chewy Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 large egg, plus 1 large egg yolk
2-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups chocolate chips

Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Melt the butter over low heat and set aside to cool. Put oven racks at the top and lower-middle positions. Stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

In the large bowl of an electric mixer, on low speed beat together the butter and both sugars until thoroughly blended. Beat in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, and on the lowest mixer speed beat until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Place large scoops of dough (about 2 tablespoons per scoop) onto parchment-covered cookie sheets, about 8 or 9 scoops per sheet. (If you donot have baking parchment, grease the cookie sheets; the cookies will end up slightly more crispy on the bottoms.)

Place one cookie sheet on each oven rack. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, then reverse positions of the cookie sheets. Bake for another 6 to 8 minutes, until just barely golden brown and puffed. Remove from the oven and let cool on the cookie sheets for about 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat for remaining cookie dough.

About 2-1/2 dozen
