Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
Source: Slightly modified from Gimme Some Oven Yield: 2 dozen
1/2 cup of butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup of brown sugar (packed)
1/3 cup of granulated white sugar
2 tsp of vanilla
1-1/2 cups of flour
2 tsp of cornstarch
1 tsp of baking soda
1/4 tsp of salt
1-1/2 cups of chocolate chips (semisweet or others)
Cream together butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix until well-incorporated and creamy. Add the flour, cornstarch, baking, and salt. Stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Scoop out cookie dough in 1-1/2 Tbsp portions onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Bake in a 350° F oven for 10-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the pan for 2 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container or freeze.
