Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies is one of those recipes that you search years for the right one and usually end up meshing a bunch of recipes together to make your own.  Well I have been on the search forever and I think I have finally perfected my recipe. These are a sweet cookie filled with milk chocolate chips that stay chewy and soft.  Give it a try and let me know what you think :)

Here's what you need:

3 cups flour, all purpose
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup, butter, unsalted, at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed firmly
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 Tbs. light corn syrup
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups milk chocolate chips (semi-sweet work well too)

In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Beat in the egg and egg yolk, then the corn syrup.  Mix well, scraping down the sides as you go.
Next add the vanilla and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.
Add the chocolate chips and beat until just incorporated.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat.

Using a medium cookie scoop (I use my trusty Pampered Chef scoops) scoop dough onto lined baking sheet about 1 inch apart and bake for 9 - 12 minutes depending on if you like chewy or crispy cookies.
Let cool on cookie sheet for 2 - 3 minute before moving to wire rack to cool completely.
Enjoy with a tall glass of milk or whatever your beverage of choice is :)

Serves - 3 dozen approx.
