Yummy Cookies

2 cups + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted, melted butter (then cooled)
1 1/2 cups packed golden brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp real vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans (optional)
1 cups semi-sweet chips or chunks
1 cup white chocolate chuncks
1 Cup Butterscotch chips

Place oven rack in the middle (or lower middle) of the oven. Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In a sauce pan on VERY low heat, melt the butter slowly. Set aside and allow to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the melted (and cooled) butter and sugars together with a mixer - medium speed (approx 2 minutes) Beat in the egg, york and vanilla until smooth. You want to mix it long enough that the blend starts to lighten in color and looks like it's beginning to whip (about 3 minutes).
Place mixer on the lowest speed and very slowly add the flour mixture a small amount at a time... approximately 1 minute. Do not over mix.. just do this enough to blend the flour. Pour in the chocolate chunks or chips and stir with a spoon until well-incorporated. If using nuts, add them here and blend with a spoon. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes."

They do but they are so worth it. Everyone loved them. I made 8dz and the were all gone that night. I took them over to church, then to the hospital where one of our members were and then the rest in my house that night.
