Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post. If you’re new here, I’d like to welcome you and please don’t forget to follow my blog if you haven’t. Today I will be giving you a chocolate chip cookies recipe. It’s great for the season and they’re delicious. Now further a do let’s get to the recipe!
- 2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup or 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted & slightly cooled
- 3/4 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 and 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chocolate chunks
step one: Whisk the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt together in a large bowl.
step two: In a medium bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until no brown sugar lumps remain. Whisk in the egg, then the egg yolk.
step three: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
step four: Cover the dough and chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or up to 3-4 days. Chilling is mandatory. Take the dough out of the refrigerator and allow to slightly soften at room temperature for 10 minutes.
step five: Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Roll the dough into balls, about 3 Tablespoons of dough each. The dough will be crumbly, but the warmth of your hands will help the balls stay together. Roll the cookie dough balls to be taller rather than wide, to ensure the cookies will bake up to be thick.
step six: Place 8 balls of dough onto each cookie sheet. Press a few more chocolate chips/chunks on top of the dough balls for looks, if desired. Bake the cookies for 12-13 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and under baked. They will continue to bake on the cookie sheet. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
