Fat cookies

December 2nd, 2011 :: 6 comments

Like most people, I grew up eating store bought cookies. This is the first real cookie recipe I’ve ever made and I’m convinced it has to be the best one anywhere. The cookies come out super fat and gooey. I gave half of them away to my co-workers to prevent myself from eating the whole batch. Even taking pictures of them was a hard task, because they kept disappearing. I will never buy a store bought chocolate chip cookie again. Why waste the calories?

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Serving 1 1/2 dozen
