The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter 
  • 2 ¼ cups bread flour 
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt 
  • 1 tsp. baking soda 
  • ¼ cup sugar 
  • 1 ¼ cups brown sugar 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 egg yolk 
  • 2 T milk 
  • 1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract 
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375. 

Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside. 

Pour the melted butter in the mixer's work bowl. Add the sugar and brown sugar. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the egg, yolk, 2 T. milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. 

Chill the dough, and then scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown, checking the cookies after 5 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet for even browning.
