  1. In a large bowl using a mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, and sugar together on medium speed until combined and creamy for about 2 minutes.
  2. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. In another medium bowl, sift the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients, then beat with a mixer until combined.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips afterward.
  6. Cover the dough tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.
  7. Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature for 10 min.  When chilled, the dough will seem crumbly, but will come together when you work the dough with your hands
  8. Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F) and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. You can also do them stage in one sheet tray.
  9. Roll balls of dough, about 1.5 Tablespoons of dough each, into balls.
  10. Bake for 10-12 min, until barely golden brown around the edges.
  11. Cool for 5 min on the baking sheet. Then move them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Tip:

  • Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to 1 week or in the freezer for 3 months.
  • This is optional, but as soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press a few chocolate chips on top. They’ll melt right down into the cookie, making them extra pretty. 
  • You can make the cookie dough and chill it in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Allow to come to room temperature then continue with preheating the oven.
