The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I have been making these chocolate chip cookies forever...they are sooo good straight out of the oven, then they get super crispy and are divine when cooled, THEN they are super good if you freeze them as well! So diverse these cookies are!
In a mixer add 1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar, 1/2 Cup White Sugar, 1 While Egg plus 1 egg yolk, 1 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract and 3/4 Cup Melted Butter. The melted butter part is why I love this recipe...no waiting for softened butter.

 Turn your mixer on high and combine until it starts to slightly lighten in colour..about 2 minutes.
Add your Dry Ingredients. 2 Cups Unbleached Flour, 1 Tsp Baking Soda and a 1/2 Tsp Salt. Turn your mixer on low to JUST combine the dry ingredients into the wet. Do not over mix.

 With a spatula add your Chocolate Chips (1 Cup) and any other nuts or dried fruits. I added 1/4 cup of chopped pecans to this batch!
 Spoon out balls of the cookie dough onto a non-greased baking sheet. These cookies do spread quite a bit so make sure to leave a couple of inches between each dollop. Bake for 15-17 Minutes at 325F or until the cookies start to slightly brown around the edges.
Allow to slightly cool on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. Or just eat them warm out of the oven with a big glass of milk!
