Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Ever since I made brownies with my niece and nephew, they are on a baking and cooking kick with me. I love the fact that they've taken an active interest in what I'm doing and are keen to try new recipes on their own. This is my absolutely favourite cookie in the world. There is something so comforting about the marriage of the chocolate chip with the butter, sugar and flour. I make this cookie quite regularly but freeze the entire batch because if I bake them all, they'll be eaten within 24 to 48 hours and that really wouldn't be good for my hips.

About a year ago, I found this particular recipe online, and I like the way that the cornstarch helped the cookies stay soft even days after baking. These have become my niece and nephew's favourite after school snack especially because they can take out the frozen cookies, and bake them whenever they'd like, or when mom feels that they need a sweet treat.

Ingredients

1 1⁄4 cup
Butter, room temperature
1⁄2 cup
White Sugar
1 1⁄2 cup
Brown Sugar
3  
Eggs
2 teaspoons
Vanilla Essence
1 teaspoon
Baking Soda
1⁄2 teaspoon
Kosher Salt
3 cups

Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350°

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

3. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until incorporated.

4. Stir the dry ingredients in (baking soda, salt and flour) until evenly combined and finally the chocolate chips. 

5. Scoop batter onto baking sheet on large mounds, 2-3 inches apart. (At this point I froze half of the scooped cookies because I love having warm chocolate chip cookies for dessert, plus I give them to my niece and nephew so that they can bake them anytime they want.)

6. Bake 10-12 minutes until edges are golden and centers are almost set. (Add 3 - 5 more minutes if baking from frozen)

7. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
