- 2 sticks unsalted butter (Yes, use real butter! I only had "salted" and it didn't matter)

- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg YOLK
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt the butter in a bowl in the microwave. Sift together ( I don't sift) the flour, salt and baking soda in another bowl and set aside.
Add the sugar and brown sugar into the melted butter. Cream the butter and sugars together.
Add the egg, the egg yolk, 2 Tablespoons milk, vanilla extract and mix.
Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until throughly combined.
