Now, I didn’t forget about the Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies I promised to share with you. These cookies are better than the classic, store bought ones. These are loaded with chocolate and are totally dunk-able if you’re into that sort of thing! This recipe uses both light and dark brown sugar but it’s totally okay if you use whichever one you have on hand.
What’s wonderful about these cookies is that they have a crisp out edge but the bite is soft, tender and chewy. That my friends is what happens when you add cornstarch. It’s been a crazy day here today and I left these on my counter to cool this morning before heading out. One doctor appointment, a grocery store run and a minor kitchen disaster due to a broken kitchen faucet later and they are still perfectly delicious…even after sitting on the counter all day! So these are perfect should you ever need to leave them out for whatever reason 😉
Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies
Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies are better than the classic, store bought ones. They're loaded with chocolate and are totally dunk-able if you're into that sort of thing!
- 2 cups Unbleached Flour, all purpose
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tbsp Cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
- 3/4 cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup Sugar, granulated
- 1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
- 2 tsp Vanilla, pure & good quality
- 1 Egg, whole
- 1 Egg Yolk
- 1 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chunks
In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, beat butter with all three sugars until light and fluffy. Scrape bowl and continue mixing on low speed. Add vanilla and eggs (1 whole egg plus the extra yolk). Continue mixing until eggs are incorporated.
Slowly begin adding flour mixture in a steady stream. Mix until just combined. Stop and scrape bowl with a silicone spatula, making sure remaining flour on bottom gets mixed in.
Pour chocolate chips into dough and stir with spatula until chips are mixed throughout. Cover dough, and place in fridge for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight.
When it's time to bake, scoop out dough using a small cookie scoop and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on baking sheet before devouring.
