In a large mixing bowl, cream together unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and salt until combined.
Mix in the egg yolks and vanilla extract.
Gradually add all-purpose flour to the mixture and stir until crumbly. Then, add in 2 tsp milk to achieve a soft dough. If needed, add more milk for a pliable consistency, being careful not to make the dough too wet.
Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place them onto two ungreased baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
Bake one sheet at a time in the preheated oven until the cookies are golden brown on the bottom, about 12-16 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until smooth.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cooled cookies, and let them set for a few minutes. Store in an airtight container.
