BEST-EVER CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

 

  • Cooking Time: 10
  • Servings: 24 cookies
  • Preparation Time: 15

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. bittersweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.
  • 3. Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chunks.
  • 4. Using a standard-sized cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges. (The tops will not brown, but do NOT cook longer than ten minutes.)
  • 5. Let cool, on the sheet, on a wire rack for five minutes. Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely. Try not to eat them all.

Notes

These cookies are the absolute best I've ever made. They are so perfectly soft and chewy. The extra fluffiness and lift comes from cornstarch--a surprising ingredient for cookies, but one I'd bet you've already got on hand!
