  • 1 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour

  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels


  1. In a large bowl, beat melted butter and sugars at medium speed with a mixer until creamy. Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and next 3 ingredients. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until combined. Beat in chocolate chunks and morsels. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 3 days.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
