Best-Cookies-I've-Ever-Eaten Cookies (a chewy cookie)

I know you guys like your own recipes-- and I like them too.  They are delicious.  But I've been on the hunt for cookies that don't taste too salty (for me), don't taste like baking soda (to me), aren't too cakey (to me), and have enough chewiness and a tiny crunch on the edges to completely satisfy me. This is the one!  I actually didn't even use chocolate chips, rather, I divided the batter in 3 and made some with minced up Twix bar (mom's idea), peanut butter Dove bar, and Heath bar.  I'm so happy I did! I'm completely hooked.  If only Greta could let me have a glass of milk once in a while...


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (I barely sifted it, I used a spoon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted (yes! 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 (or crushed candy bar of your choice... I'd advise against Skittles ;-))


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. (I just kept checking them until they looked golden.  This was at exactly 15 minutes for me, but depends on your oven)
