In search of a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I could throw together quickly for my boyfriend and some of his friends, I found this recipe on the blog A Chick Who Can Cook.
The corn starch is the secret ingredient that makes these so soft. This recipe yielded about 2 dozen medium-sized cookies. Really quick and easy recipe, and didn't leave me with a ton of extra cookies!
Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 t. cornstarch
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
2 t. vanilla extract
1-1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Slowly mix in flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by the spoonful on a cookie tray. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are barely just turning golden brown.
