Take a few cookie sheets and grease them well or line them with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set the flour mixture aside while you prepare the rest of your ingredients.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low or medium heat, taking care not to let it brown.
In a medium sized bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until they are well blended and of a thick, creamy consistency. Beat in the vanilla extract, egg and egg yolk until the mixture lightens. Mix in the dry ingredients you have set aside by hand, making sure to blend everything well but not over-stir. Sprinkle in your chocolate chips and use a wooden spoon to incorporate them into the dough evenly.
Using a large spoon, measure out 1/4 cup of cookie dough at a time, roll them into a large balls with the palms of your hands and drop them onto the cookie sheets you have prepared. Press down on them lightly with your fingers and make sure your cookies are spaced out at a distance of about 3 inches apart from one another.
Place your cookie sheets in your preheated oven and bake the cookies for approximately 15 to 17 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden brown. Do not over-bake your cookies because they would otherwise harden. Take them out of the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them with a heat-proof spatula to wire racks to cool completely.
