Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 dozen

¾ cup butter
½ cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ¼ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips

Combine butter and sugars and then add egg and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; add to wet and mix well. Add chocolate chips. Roll into 36 balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (Parchment paper makes the best cookies!) Bake at 325° for 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheets and then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. (Don't overcook - cookies should be a bit undone when you pull them out of  the oven.  They will continue cooking for the 5 minutes they are on the cookie sheet.  This will make them perfectly soft and chewy for days if kept  sealed tightly in a cookie jar.)  Enjoy!
