Total Time 30 mins
Servings 16 cookies
- 1 3/4 all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 14 tbsp butter unsalted
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs You'll use large egg plus one yolk
- 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips *chips or chunks (I prefer 60% bittersweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°F. Adjust oven rack to the center. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk all-purpose flour and baking soda together. Set aside.
Melt 10 tablespoons of butter in a 10-inch skillet. Swirl until butter is golden brown. Pour into a large bowl. Add remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and stir until completely melted.
Add brown sugar, white sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Whisk until completely combined. Add one whole egg and yolk. Whisk until completely combined, 30 seconds. Let rest for 3 minutes. Whisk for another 30 seconds. Repeat 2 more times. This mixture will take on a smooth silky texture once finished.
Add flour mixture. Stir to combine. Add chocolate chips.
Scoop 3 tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Keep two inches apart on a baking sheet. Garnish by adding a couple of chocolate chips into the top.
Bake 1 sheet at a time until cookies are browned on the edges, 8-10 minutes, rotating halfway through. Cool pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes and then remove the cookies from the pan right onto the cooling rack.

You can add 3/4 cup of walnuts or pecans but that's not happening in my house.
