Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
You’ll love these rich, thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies! They are the perfect balance of buttery, gooey, and sweet. Simple, no frills perfection - they turn out great every time!
Servings: 12 cookies
- ⅓ cup (5 tablespoons) butter, softened
- ⅓ cup light brown sugar, packed
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 large egg yolk
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅓ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Place butter in a large microwave safe bowl; microwave to soften butter to a melting point, but do not melt it. You just need the butter to be soft enough to mix around with the other ingredients.
Remove from microwave; whisk in brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and vanilla; whisk until smooth.
Whisk in the egg yolk.
Stir in the flour and baking soda; mix until thoroughly incorporated.
Mix in the chocolate chips.
Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325˚F.
Remove dough from fridge.
Pinch off dough and roll into 12 balls.
Transfer dough balls to a cookie sheet; press a few more chocolate chips on top of the dough balls for looks, if you want.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until light golden brown on top. Underbaked cookies result in softer cookies.
Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 3 more minutes; remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
