Today is my friend Mikey’s birthday and because I absolutely fail at making cakes (with a few rare exceptions), I thought I’d bake something easy and classic.

Cook’s Illustrated Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/8 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), melted and cooled
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-2 cups chocolate chips (I used 2 cups of mini chocolate chips)

Adjust oven racks to the upper- and lower-middle positions. Preheat oven to 325 F.

Mix flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the butter and sugars. Add in the egg, yolk, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Stir in chocolate chips.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop the rounded balls of dough (about 1/8 cup). Place the baking sheet on the lower rack and then switch to the upper rack halfway through. Bake for a total time of 15-18 minutes
