That's right, big, FLAT, chewy cookies. My hubbs LOVES flat cookies...the flatter the better! Not me, I am a thick, doughy cookie fan. Well, that is, until this recipe. These are 100% flat, and 100% delicious. The flavor is amazing, melt in your mouth-deliciousness. There is a little crisp along the edges, but when combined with the middle, you get a chewy, out-of-this-world, FLAT cookie!
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt, set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy, about 1 minutes. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Drop cookie dough 1/3 cup (yes 1/3 cup) at a time onto the cookie sheet. Cookies should be 3 inches apart.
Bake for 15-17 minutes in preheated oven. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
