Softer Chocolate Chip Cookies
by Angie Barrett September-12-2012
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 350F.

In a mixer cream the butter, and sugars together. Mix well.

Add the eggs one at a time. Make sure each egg is incorporated before adding the next.

Add the vanilla. Mix for 3-4 minutes.

In another mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt.

With the machine on low, slowly add the flour to the batter. Mix until just combined.

Mix in the chocolate chips.

Using a spoon, scoop out about a tablespoon of dough. Roll around in the palm of your hand and shape it into a ball. Now slightly flatten in fall with the palms of your hands. These cookies do not rise or flatten out once in the oven, so what ever shape you press it down to is what shape they are going to be. 

Place cookies onto a baking sheet.

Bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack.
