Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know, another chocolate chip cookie recipe...didn't I just post one last week? I must be on a choc chip cookie kick?? I don't know what it is...there are thousands of recipes for these cookies and every single time I find a new one I can't say no...I have to try it! It stays on my mind until I finally give in and make the new recipe..each new one I find is SO convincing that their recipe is the best and, well, I guess I fall for it! I could have worse bad habits, right?!  Today's recipe comes from the wonderful yummy blog, Mel's Kitchen Cafe  Go check her blog out, she has awesome recipes! She swears these are the perfect chocolate chip cookie and her "go to" recipe, so I had to try them and find out for myself!   I have got to tell you....I can finally rest and not feel obligated to make another chocolate chip cookie recipe I come across....these were AWESOME! PERFECT! I can finally rest on my quest...thank you Mel! These cookies had the perfect amount of salt, the perfect amount of chocolate chips and butter and they were the perfect texture! Next time I will add nuts.....that way my family will stay away from them!
Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies
21/8C flour
1/2t baking soda
1/2t salt
Mix these three ingredients and set aside.
12T(1 1/2sticks)butter, slightly melted and cooled
1C brown sugar
1/2C sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2t vanilla
2C semi sweet chocolate chips
Mix the butter and sugars until combined. Then add the egg,yolk, and vanilla and mix until the batter has lightened in color, about 2 minutes. Add in the flour mixture along with chocolate chips and stir until combined. Form into tablespoon balls and place on greased cookie sheets.  Frozen balls can be stored up to 2 months. Bake the cookies 10-12minutes or until slightly browned on edges, do not over bake or the cookies will be tough and hard. If baking frozen cookie dough add 1-2minutes to cooking time. Store baked cookies in an airtight container, or freeze baked cookies for up to 2 months.
(when I made this recipe I used my cookie scoop which is bigger than a Tablespoon and I had to cook them 14minutes...they won't look done, but take them out! I let them rest on the cookie sheets a few minutes before transferring them to wax paper. If you are using dark pans, take them out sooner)

The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie!   Finally!
