I needed to bake and I wanted to make something simple. What’s more simple than chocolate chip cookies? This is a great recipe and the cookies turned out delicious 🙂

- 1 egg yolk
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

- 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. (or rubber spatula…)
