I have made these cookies that many times that i know the recipe off by heart!! And i only discovered it a month or two ago!! They are amazing, as long as you follow the recipe exactly and DO NOT overcook them. I vary the choc chips, sometimes putting in mini M&M's, and i dont really worry about measuring the choc chips either, but it is very important to follow the actual dough recipe to the letter. I once tried cheating and added in another whole egg instead of just the extra yolk and i had to add extra flour because the mix was then too wet, and when they were cooked they rose up all puffy and didnt flatten out to chewy cookies like they usually do. So yes, the extra egg yolk is very important!! Also when cooking them, only cook them until the surface of the cookies look JUST dry. Any more than that and they go all hard. My whole family just wolfs these down, thats why they have to be kept hidden in the freezer!! The only thing that i change is the serving size! It says makes 18, but they are HUGE. So i always weigh the mixture and divide it by 30, and then weigh each dough ball, to make sure that they are all the same size. This still makes a decent sized cookie without feeling like you've just eaten a full meal of cookie!!
