Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

Summer Friday Ultimate Cookie Recipe
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup melted butter, cooled
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 dark chocolate bar, chopped (can also use semi-sweet or milk chocolate here)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Melt butter over a stovetop. Refrigerate until cooled while you prepare the rest.


In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.


In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla and melted butter. Beat over medium heat for 2 minutes. The mixture should lighten in color and all ingredients should be incorporated.


Add in 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk. Beat until incorporated.


Add in dry ingredients 1/3 at a time until just incorporated. Be careful not to overmix the dough!


Fold in your chocolate chips and chocolate bar. If you’re a fan of walnuts, feel free to add those as well.


Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon measuring spoon, measure roughly 2 heaping tablespoons of dough. Roll into a ball and repeat with remaining dough. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or in a tupperware container.


Refrigerate shaped cookies for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days. This helps prevent the cookies from thinning out while they’re baking.


When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.


Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.
