Julia's Chocolate Chip Cookies

We got about 0.3 of an inch of freezing rain/ice last night, which closed the schools today. What to do, what to do on an unexpected day off . . . bake chocolate chip cookies with Julia!

We started with 3/4 cup butter (melted).
Then we added:
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
Julia is pretty good at cracking the eggs by herself. As you can tell by her expression, it's serious business.
Julia helped mix all of those ingredients together.

Then we mixed in:
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Before we could stir in the chocolate chips, Julia had to snitch "just one more." I honestly don't know how many chocolate chips she ate, but there were still plenty in the cookies.
The cookies baked at 325-degrees for 12 minutes. Here's Julia with her 56 cookies!

Is it just the photos, or is her hair turning blonde?

Oooooh, I'm excited. Now I have the recipe for your oh so good chocolate chip cookies and can make them. I wanted to make them over the holidays, but wasn't sure how to get ahold of you since you don't usually have your cell phone on and didn't have much internet access. Now I have the recipe. Now I can make cookies. Evil, Evil cookies. Muahahhaha.

It's from a chocolate cookbook. The original recipe also calls for 2 tablespoons instant coffee and some chopped walnuts, but we usually don't put those ingredients in there. Enjoy!
