Serves: about 18 large cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter,
  • melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1½ cups white chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat baking mats.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, or the bowl of a standing mixer, combine the butter and sugars and mix well. Stir in the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined. Sprinkle about half of the flour mixture on top and mix until just combined. Add the other half of the flour mixture and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  4. Using a small (about 1½ tablespoons) scoop, or a regular tablespoon, scoop out two heaping tablespoonfuls of batter (a total of about 3 tablespoons). Put the 2 scoops together and place on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 3 to 4 inches between each cookie.
  5. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until dark golden brown at the edges and lighter brown in the center. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
