The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

Move over Tollhouse, there's a bigger, better chocolate chip cookie in town: America's Test Kitchen Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie to be exact.

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies
14 Tbl butter divided
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda (heap it if your baking soda is over a month old)
1 1/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cups nuts (I always use pecans)

Brown 10 Tbl butter in skillet 3-5 minutes (should be brownish in color and have a nutty smell). Pour into bowl. Stir in other 4 Tbl butter. Add sugars, salt, and vanilla. Whisk eggs in 30 seconds then let the batter stand 3 minutes. Repeat this whisk/stand pattern twice. Use spatula or wooden spoon to mix in flour and baking soda for 1 minute. Stir in chips and nuts. Drop 3 Tbl balls, 2 inches apart on greased pans (or use parchment paper). Rotate halfway through baking. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-14 minutes.
