Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip CookiesAfter all the rich and indulgent chocolate treats over Valentine’s – it’s time to simplify; to head back to our roots.

Is there any food as down home and comforting as a chocolate chip cookie? The whole combination of brown sugar and butter with little bites of chocolate is always a winner!

Three are so many different recipes out there – and I would be willing to test each and every one!

Each of my sister’s has their own special recipe, and my favorite is whichever one I am holding in my hand at anytime!

This recipe is one my youngest sister served us at a recent trip to her house.  They are thick and chewy – just they way I like ’em!

Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/8 cups flour (2 cups and 2 Tablespoons)

1 1/2 sticks melted butter (3/4 cup)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips (or more)

Mix the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla.

Add the flour mixture and the chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoons on an ungreased cookie sheet.
