  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 160 °C (325 °F). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla with a wooden spoon, until the mixture is well blended. Stir in the dry ingredients and chocolate chips.
  4. With a spoon, drop 30 ml (2 tablespoons) of dough per cookie onto the baking sheets, leaving 5-cm (2-inch) between each cookie. Flatten lightly with your fingers.
  5. Bake for 11 to 12 minutes (the centre of the cookie will still be soft but will firm up as they cool). Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. Bake the remaining dough the same way.
  6. Store the cookies for a few days in an airtight container. 


Step 5
For a denser cookie with a crackled finish; bake the cookies for about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and drop the baking sheet a couple of times on a work surface to flatten the cookies. Put them back in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes to finish baking.

Step 6
To keep the cookies soft, add a slice of fresh bread or a slice of apple to the container.
