Best Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies could take over the world! They are so easy, simple and delicious. I first saw this recipe as a post on Facebook from, as one of their all time most popular posts. I had to try it. When my husband made them for me for the first time, we were both blown away with how BIG they were, but also how they had the perfect texture - not too chewy and not too crispy. I've never used a recipe that was so consistent in turning out excellent chocolate chip cookies. I imagine they would also be the perfect cookie to make ice cream sandwiches, but I haven't had a chance to try out my theory.

What's in it
2 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 C unsalted butter, melted
1 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1 Tbl vanilla
1 egg & 1 egg yolk
2 C chocolate chips

How it's made
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
Sift together flour, soda, salt and set aside.
Cream together butter and sugars until well blended. Beat in vanilla and eggs until light and creamy.
Mix in dry ingredients until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop cookies 1/4 C at a time onto a cookie sheet, 3" apart. (Use parchment paper or silicone mats for best results). Bake 15-17 minutes and cool on rack. Makes approximately 20 cookies.
