(scoop and level to measure, don't spoon and level)
large egg yolk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, set aside.
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer cream together butter and sugar until well combined.
Mix in egg, egg yolk and vanilla.
Add in flour mixture and mix just until combined. If cookie dough seems very soft chill for 1 hour before proceeding so cookies spread less.
Scoop dough out using a medium cookie scoop (or 1 1/2 Tbsp at a time, and roll into balls if not using a cookie scoop) and drop onto baking sheet, spacing them 2-inches apart.
Bake in preheated oven 9 - 11 minutes, they should appear slightly under-baked. If baking two batches at once then rotate pans halfway through baking.
Cool on pan 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store cookies in an airtight container.
