1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Sift: Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.

Mix: In a bowl, mix the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.

Beat: Beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy, then add the sifted ingredients until just blended.
