Things you'll need

Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk, room temperature
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon course sea salt

Let's get started!

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar.
  3. Add in the vanilla extract and eggs. Mix until well combined.
  4. Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients at a time and continue mixing until well combined, scraping the sides as needed.
  5. Using the spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Chill the dough in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Scoop three tablespoons of dough and roll into tall balls. Place onto the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. 
  9. Bake until barely starting to turn golden brown, about 11-13 minutes. Cookies may look undone but will settle and flatten as they cool.
