I have an addiction to chocolate chip cookies. Now I've found a recipe that I think is going to be hard to top! I was looking for a thick, chewy, SOFT cookie and I found it. These stay soft for over a week. its amazing!
I try and convince my kids that they want me to make them so I have an excuse. I used 2 kinds of chocolate chips and a tablespoon of vanilla to get as many yummy flavors as I could. I am going to go make another batch as soon as I finish typing.
Big, Thick, Chewy, & Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup Butter, room temp
3/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 3/4 cups Chocolate Chips, any variety
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the butter and sugars and beat until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.
In a medium bow whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and baking powder. Turn your mixer to low and add in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat. Measure 1/4 cup of dough and form into thick circles.Bake for 9-11 minutes. The middle of the cookie should look a little under baked.
Remove from the oven and let cool for a couple minutes on the cookie sheet and then move to a cooling rack. These are really good warm and really good at room temp so enjoy!
