Chocolate Chip cookies are a huge FAVORITE with our family. I don't know
if its the dough or the cookie that they love the most, either way...they are our
"go to" cookie. These cookies are soft and chewy and melt right in your mouth,
which in our book, is what makes a GRAND Chocolate Chip Cookie!
Halle's favorite Soft Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened (always use REAL butter)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
2 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
2 t. cornstarch
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1- 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips (add more if you like more)
IN a mixing bowl combine butter and sugars and mix until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Add dry ingredient, slowly and stir until mixed together. Fold in chocolate chips. Place dough in a ziplock plastic bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Prepare a baking sheet by spraying it with cooking spray. Remove cookie dough from refrigerator and gently place a scoop (size of a walnut) on prepared cookie sheet. Space cookie dough out, as the dough will spread while cooking. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE or they will NOT be soft and chewy, they will be hard and YUCKY! At 8 minutes you will think the cookies aren't done...but really, they are. Remove from oven and cool completely! THEN enjoy their chewy goodness!!
