Chocolate Chip Cookies

For a while, this has been my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. These cookies are soft and chewy and simply delicious! chocolate chip cookies.8

These are also readily adaptable. If you like for a slightly chewier cookie, add an extra teaspoon of cornstarch.

Or, if you like something with a bit more of a crunch, take out a teaspoon of cornstarch or forgo it all together. chocolate chip cookies.6

These cookie pictured have actually no cornstarch at all and tasted great: a little bit crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. chocolate chip cookies.2

I have made this recipe plenty of times with cornstarch though, and it still tastes absolutely amazing, just a bit thicker and chewier. chocolate chip cookies.7

Sometimes though, you need to be careful when you add cornstarch to these cookies, because they don’t brown as much and it’s easy to believe that they’re not cooked all the way.chocolate chip cookies.4

If you want a cookie that is cooked as soon as it looks like it’s cooked, make it without the cornstarch. chocolate chip cookies.5

If you’re torn, just make two batches: I’m sure they’ll be gone before you know it! chocolate chip cookies.3
