Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

One cannot have enough cookie recipes, especially with the holidays coming up, am I right?  Though I’ve posted many chocolate chip cookie variants on this blog in the past (check out the Recipe Index under “cookies”, if you want to see what I mean), these are classic chocolate chip cookies.  Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies | A Nerd Cooks

This cookie recipe comes from The Novice Chef Blog.

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 14 tbs unsalted butter, softened
  •  3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 heaping cup milk chocolate chips, plus more for topping

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, using the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together, until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined.  Little by little, add the dry ingredients.

Fold in the chocolate chips.

Using your hands, two spoons, or a cookie scoop, roll 2 table spoons of dough into a ball.  Place the dough balls on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned.  Allow them to rest on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to finish cooling.


Maeby couldn’t help but check things out while I was photographing the cookies.  Don’t worry, she never got any! 😉

  1. These look beautiful! I’ve found that 3:1 is the perfect ratio of brown: white sugar, too. I’ve never tried putting cornstarch in my chocolate chip cookies though, and look forward to trying this recipe soon!
