Cookie Monster

    YUM! you are going to read this recipe because anything that starts with this much butter is guaranteed to be delicious.

    Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 3/4 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 12 tbsps unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • A lot of chocolate(I like chocolate chunks best because they don't melt all the way and add another texture to the cookie)

  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Mix flour and baking soda in a bowl
  • Heat butter in a skillet constantly stirring. After the butter melts you will feel compelled to take it off the flame, resist this urge, the browned butter is what gives these cookies depth. After awhile, the butter will turn brown, frothy and begin to emanate a nutty, molasses smell- now its done.
  • Add sugar, salt and vanilla to butter. Don't forget the salt! I'm not the biggest fan of salty-sweet combo but salt is really essential in chocolate chip cookies.
  • Add egg and egg yolk, stir, let sit for a bit and then stir some more
  • Stir in the flour
  • Add chocolate chunks, really as much as you want, go crazy
