Best ever chocolate chip cookies

I have tried many a chocolate chip cookie recipe and I must say, this one is at the top of my list.  They bake beautifully in the oven and are fluffy and delicious after they are done. I think this is a great dessert to make around the Thanksgiving holidays because you can bake them, sit them out for a nice snack and the batch makes a whole lot.  I will be making them for sure.. :) 

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies
 (taken from allrecipes.com)
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
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
3. 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.
4. 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.
