PTSD Chocolate Chip Cookies

I haven't posted for ages, not because I've stopped baking (although the amount of baking has decreased dramatically) but because I've basically been very down with all the 'events' that have been happening in Egypt over the last few months. But these cookies managed to pick me up, even if only momentarily - especially after the third one.

I got the recipe from

They are big and awesome:

2 cups all-purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted 
1 cup packed brown sugar 
1/2 cup white sugar 
1 tablespoon vanilla extract 
1 egg 
1 egg yolk 
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips 

1. Preheat the oven to 165 degrees C. Grease cookie sheets or line 
with grease proof paper. 
2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
3. 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. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. 
Cookies should be about 3 inches apart. 
4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. 
Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool
