adapted from No. 2 Pencil2 tablespoons of butter
2 firmly packed tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
Pinch of kosher salt
¼ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1 large egg yolk
1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
Mini semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a microwave safe bowl, heat butter just until it starts to melt and is softened. Blend softened butter, sugars, salt, and vanilla together by hand.
Add egg yolk and stir again.
Add baking soda and flour and stir until combined.
Then stir in mini chocolate chips until you feel like there are enough.
Scoop dough, and place on baking sheet at least two inches.
Bake for about 8 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
Remove baking sheet from oven and give the baking sheet a firm, but careful bang on the counter top. This will deflate the cookies and give them a perfect wrinkly appearance.
I am a lazy baker. I love baking, but sometimes I just can't. Cookies cause this laziness to come up to the surface. You make the dough, bake a couple batches, and then you still have a crap ton of dough! This recipe is perfect for my lazy baker heart. It made six cookies, and they all fit on one cookie sheet. It is gloriously delicious, gloriously portioned, and gloriously easy to clean up. Make these! I promise you will not be disappointed!
