  • Preheat oven to 350ºF (177ºC). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, using a hand-held mixer or a stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips with a large spoon or rubber spatula.
  • Shape the dough into balls, containing about 2 tablespoons of dough each, and place on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes until edges are lightly browned, but centers are still soft. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.


Cookies will stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
