Big Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks)
2 1/4 C all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 lg egg + 1 egg yolk
1 Tb vanilla
12 oz chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Melt butter in large bowl in microwave (or
over the stove) about 1 minute on high. Cool to lukewarm. Add brown
sugar, sugar, vanilla, eggs and egg yolk whisking to blend. Add
flour, salt and baking soda and powder in that order stirring with
a wooden spoon. Dough will be stiff. Stir in chocolate chips and
nuts if using, until evenly distributed.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Using a 1/4c measuring
cup, scoop out dough not quite filling the cup. Do not flatten.
Bake at least 2 inches apart. This usually makes 6 cookies on a 11
x 17 cookie sheet. Bake for 14 minutes and then check to see if
they are done. You want the edges to be light brown and the centers
still soft. Cool the cookies on the parchment paper on a flat
surface or leave on cookie sheet to cool. I use 2 cookie sheets

Notes: Cook an extra minute or two for crisper cookies. Store in
airtight container. Yield: 18-20 cookies.

I made the cookies last night and they are fantastic. They stay nice and soft and gooey. If someone was in a bad mood, they could have mood-altering powers! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! :)
