I've made these several times, and then the recipe was archived and I couldn't access it. From time to time I try again and today I was lucky. I'm not sure if these are Barefoot Contessa's. Poster's ingredient amounts are different for instance, the recipe I used calls for 2 1/8 cups flour. Original calls for 2 cups. My cookies were definitely thicker.

Posted by Scott in '04: “These are my favorites”

2 1/8 cups unsifted all-purpose flour (Original recipe calls for 2 cups)
1/2 tsp kosher salt (Orig. 1 tsp)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled (Orig. 1/2 pound)
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk (original: 2 extra-large eggs)
2 tsp vanilla
1–2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (or half chips, half nuts) (1 1/4 lbs)

Oven: 325 F (Original recipe says 350F)
Mix flour, salt, and baking soda together in medium bowl.
Mix butter and sugars until thoroughly blended. Mix in egg, yolk and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in chips/nuts to taste.
Use about 1/4 cup dough per cookie.
Bake until cookies are golden brown and outer edges start to harden,
13 - 18 minutes.

I'll have to try the original as it was printed and see which I like better.
