Oh ya, I HAD to try it! The BBFCCCC's (as in Best, Big, Fat, Chewy, Chocolate Chip Cookies)
All Recipes BBFCCCC link
This recipe has a zillion fab reviews on All Recipes and I needed to find out what all the hype was about.
Well, it was all about these excellent cookies!!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used mini chips for mine)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

They came out spectacular! Nate loved them and I took two to work today and they received rave reviews!! I'll still make my ole reliable Chocolate Chip Cookies, but this is a great tried and true recipe that really is fantastic!
