Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
8 ounces unsalted butter
12 ounces bread flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 ounces granulated sugar
8 ounces light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies
*I don't recommend half or double batches. Instead, make a whole batch, bake what you want, portion and freeze the rest.
Another note: Keep in mind this is a "chocolate chip" cookie and therefore the quality of the final product will be greatly effected by the quality of the chips used. Although the semi-sweet "morsels" that we all know from the yellow bag are serviceable, I'd suggest combining such kid-friendly fodder with something a bit more daring, say dark chocolate chips/chunks in the 68% cocoa range. Oh, and remember you can chop your own.

1 Melt the butter in a 2-quart saucepan over low heat, then set aside to cool slightly.
2 Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda onto a paper plate.
3 Pour the butter into your stand mixer's work bowl. Add the sugars and beat with the paddle attachment on medium speed for 2 minutes.
4 Meanwhile in a separate bowl, whisk together the whole egg, egg yolk, milk and vanilla extract.
5 Slow the mixer to "stir" and slowly work the egg mixture into the butter and sugar. Mix until thoroughly combined, about 30 seconds
6 Using the paper plate as a slide, gradually integrate the dry ingredients, stopping a couple of times to scrape down the side of the bowl with a rubber spatula
7 Once the flour is worked in, drop the speed to "stir" and add the chocolate chips.
8 Chill the dough for 1 hour.
9 Heat the oven to 375 degrees F and place the racks in the top third and bottom third of the oven.
10 Scoop the dough into 1 1/2-ounce portions onto parchment paper-line half sheet pans, 6 cookies per sheet.
11 Bake two sheets at a time for 15 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through.
12 Remove from the oven, slide the parchment with the cookies onto a cooling rack, and wait at least 5 minutes before devouring.
