Add the sugar and brown sugar to the melted butter and cream with a wooden spoon or fork. Add the egg, yolk, milk, and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, salt, and baking soda together. Add this to the butter mixture. Lastly stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Chill the dough at least two hours or overnight.
  4. When your dough is chilled, preheat your oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Roll about 4 tablespoons of dough (or 2 ounces if you want to weigh each one) into balls or use a #20 disher, and place on the cookie sheet. be sure to leave ample room between them, as they spread while baking.
