  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or in a medium bowl using an electric beater, cream the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the egg and egg yolk and beat on medium speed until combined.
  5. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  6. In a separate medium bowl, combine the granulated sugar and vanilla.
