Chocolate Chip Cookies -- My New Favorite

3/4 C. butter, softened (unsalted)

1 C. unpacked light brown sugar

1/4 C. granulated sugar

1 egg

1 Tbsp. vanilla

2 C. all purpose flour

1 Tbsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1 C. chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 325 F.

2. Thoroughly combine butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.

3. Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt until thoroughly combined.

4. Mix in chocolate chips

5. Using an ice cream scoop, drop 8 balls of dough onto greased baking sheets. Place baking sheets in oven and bake for 6 minutes.

6. Remove baking sheets from oven and gently press each cookie with a spatula to flatten slightly. If dough appears too gooey to squish, place back in oven for another minute or two.

7. Continue to bake for another 4-6 minutes, until cookies appear slightly golden around the edges and still appear slightly raw in the center. This will help keep them soft.

8. Allow cookies to set up on cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing them to wire racks for cooling. Allow to cool only briefly before transferring to a sealed container for storing.
