My step grandfather has always been a fan of chocolate, almost obsessed with it, so when I was going up to my grandmother’s house last weekend for her birthday I decided I’d contribute by trying out a new gooey chocolate chip recipe from AllRecipes.com. It was pretty good, but a little too chocolatey for my family’s taste, so I left the plate behind the next day, but was still good with a bowl of ice cream.
Ooey Gooey Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt with a fork; set aside. 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. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes (this is how long the recipe calls for, but it actually ended up being around 22 minutes in my oven) 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.
