Mom's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
My best chocolate chip cookie recipe is simple, with no hard-to-find ingredients or complicated instructions. Chocolate chip cookies should be simple, yet decadent...
Servings: 4 dozen
- 1 c butter, softened
- 3/4 c granulated sugar
- 1/2 c brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 c flour, sifted
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1-1/2 tsp cornstarch
- 2 c chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Using a KitchenAid stand mixer or a handheld electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together for about 2 minutes.
Next, add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, and beat again until smooth.
In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients together. With mixer turning at a slow speed, slowly add dry ingredients to wet.
When everything is mixed together, add chocolate chips and mix one final time.
Roll dough into small balls and place on baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
Bake for 16-18 minutes or until cookies just start to show a hint of browning.
If you want to take your cookies to another level of decadent, after removing from the oven, lightly sprinkle with a little coarse sea salt. Let cool and enjoy!
