Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rich, chewy chocolate chip cookies made with a secret ingredient that sets them above the rest! So delicious, you won’t be able to stop at just one!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a weakness for chewy chocolate chip cookies. It’s a serious problem. I already have my absolute favorite but can you ever have enough chocolate chip cookie recipes? That was a rhetorical question. Moving on…

Whenever I see chewy chocolate chip cookies recipes that claim to be the “World’s Best” or “Best Ever”, I feel this competitive need to test them and compare them to mine. This recipe deserves a coveted spot in my regular chocolate chip cookie rotation. They were chewy, flavorful and they had the perfect ratio of chocolate chips to batter.

I was intrigued by the addition of cornstarch. I’ve never added cornstarch to a cookie recipe before. I’m not sure if the cornstarch was responsible for the extra soft texture or not, but I am excited to experiment with my other recipes!

These cookies were delicious and I have a feeling my fiancé will be requesting them as soon as the last one has disappeared!

Description

Rich, chewy chocolate chip cookies made with a secret ingredient that sets them above the rest! So delicious, you won’t be able to stop at just one!


Ingredients

Scale
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Sift flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla until completely incorporated. Add flour mixture in 3 additions; scraping down the bowl after each addition. Mix in chocolate chips.
  4. Either grease cookie sheets or cover in parchment paper. Drop 1 tablespoon sized balls onto cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. These cookies will spread! Bake 8-10 minutes in preheated oven. Kelsey’s instructions caution us not to bake longer than 10 minutes. Kelsey and I obviously share an abhorrence of crunchy cookies.!
  5. Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. If you are impatient and try to eat them before they are cool (we’ve all been this person!), the cookies will fall apart and they will seem underdone.

Notes

The dough also freezes nicely. Just roll the dough into balls and then bake in a preheated oven as directed above, adding on an additional minute or two!
