How to Make Best Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 325?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.

Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
