Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been making homemade chocolate chip cookies a long time - but these are amazing. Hand it to a Boston Chocolate maker who doesn't even have an oven this summer in her new shop to have such a great recipe. Its amazing - if you like chewy chocolate chip cookies (hint: its the extra egg yolk)

1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 T granulated sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cup plus 2 T flour
1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp baking soda
1 T vanilla
3/4 cup semi sweet choc chip
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

Let melted butter cool - cream with all sugars. Add in vanilla and eggs. Combine dry ingredients and add to wet. Stir by hand the chips in. Will be really sticky. On 350 oven, put on lightly greased cookie sheets. Heaping cookies - about 11 minutes or until still doughy looking - take them out before they are too brown. This makes about 24 cookies - so they are perfect for smaller gatherings.
Brandi - if you are reading this - you are going to get some on Thursday morning so you have something to look forward to!
The only thing I changed from her recipe is when I added the vanilla and add both kinds of chocolate chips.
