Chocolate Chip Cookies

Remember when I made banana bread last week and mentioned the reason why banana bread and chocolate chip cookies are similar? They are similar because I can't NOT try a new recipe when I see one. It's kind of funny when I try new CCC recipes considering I did a whole chocolate chip cookie week and compared 8 different recipes. The truth is, when a cookie claims to be the best I have to give it a try.

These cookies are fantastic. Everything you could want in a cookie... soft, chewy, chocolatey. These cookies have cornstarch with I think helps them to fluff a little bit. Definitely a great cookie!


Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe from Apple a Day

3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. bittersweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.

3. Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.

4. Using a standard-sized cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges. (The tops will not brown, but do NOT cook longer than ten minutes.)

5. Let cool, on the sheet, on a wire rack for five minutes. Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely.
