Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies are the one cookie that everyone loves. So in celebration of the slightly chewy, warm, soft, cookie I will give you my favorite recipe.



1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs and 1 egg yolk

2 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

4 teaspoons cornstarch

2 cups (one bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips


Cream melted butter, vanilla, and sugars. When the mixture is well combined and eggs/egg yolk, beating well after each addition. In separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cornstarch. Add half of the flour mixture to the wet mix. Beat well, then add the rest of the flour mix. Pour in the chocolate chips and mix until combined.

Refrigerate for two hours in bowl covered by aluminum foil. Preheat oven to 350F. Roll dough into tablespoon size balls. Bake cookies for about 10-15 minutes. They may not look done but if their bottom is a light golden color they are.
