Soft & Chewy Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients (makes ~27 cookies):


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp cornstarch

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg + 1 egg yolk

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup unsweetened chocolate, grated

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

sea salt


Directions:


1. Prepare the dough- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine, set aside. In a separate large bowl, combine melted butter and sugars. Whisk until smooth. Combination will be very gritty. Mix in the eggs until well combined. Mix in vanilla. Add dry ingredients to butter combination, and mix until well combined. Dough will be very soft. Using a spatula, add all the chocolate and fold into the dough. Cover dough with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.

2. Remove dough from the fridge. Preheat oven to 350º and grease 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray.

3. Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop out the dough. Roll the dough into little logs and stand logs straight up on the cookie sheet, securing the bottom of the cookie to the cookie sheet. Place about 9 cookies per cookie sheet, these cookies spread a lot. Sprinkle sea salt over the cookies. Bake in preheated oven for exactly 11 minutes. Cookies will look undone, remove them anyway. Allow cookies to cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove cookies to a cooling rack. Cool cookies completely before storage.
