Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend Shannon made us these awesome cookies, and shared the recipe. yummmm.

2 cups of all-purpose or bread flour (I used bread flour; it is supposed to make the cookies thicker)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted (melt on lowest power setting in microwave or slowly on stove — do not burn!)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon powder
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325°F (for pure convection, adjust accordingly; I used 310°F). Grease cookie sheets, or line them with parchment paper or use a Silpat.

Sift the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon powder and set aside.

Mix the sugars and butter just until thoroughly mixed. Add egg, yolk and vanilla and mix until creamy. Add sifted ingredients and mix until just blended.

Stir in the chocolate chips, then drop dough ¼ cup at a time on cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Leave them on the cookie sheet to cool a bit when removed from the oven (they will fall apart otherwise). Once they cool a few minutes, move cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Or, eat them right away with cold milk!
