My favorite Chocolate chip Cookies

Knock Your Socks off Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 c. butter (do not sub for margarine.....that will make them spread)

1 c. white sugar

3/4 c. packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tbsp. vanilla (yes, that is a tablespoon)

3 1/2 c. flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp baking soda

3 tsp. cornstarch (weird, I know, but it works!  but if you don't want it, you can leave it out)

chocolate chips (however many you like, I usually use about 3/4 c- 1 c)


Preheat you oven to 350.


Cream butter, sugars, and vanilla.  Mix in eggs.  Add in salt, soda, starch and flour.  Add in chocolate chips.  The dough may be a bit crumbly.  Don't be alarmed and add milk or anything.  Wash your hands, and squish it together and it forms up nice.  The form the dough into 1 in balls.  Place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  Cook for 8-10 minutes.  Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool.
