CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES BY ANNA OLSON

I have been beginning to think that I lost me!!! It's been some time since I posted a recipe.  With a gazillion recipes for ccc here is another one to add to the collection.  This one is a keeper.  Not sure why, and what does 2 teaspoons of cornstarch have to do with ccc?  These cookies are so round, love that.  They look like a professional baker made them.   Nothing different here but the use of the cookie scoop.  They are chewy in the middle and crisp on the edge.  So take a look for yourself and get in the kitchen and make some ccc for this weekend. This recipe comes from foodnetwork.ca  Happy baking my friends.......................Andi   
3/4 cups of unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar   ( I used light brown)
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 ounces of bittersweet chocolate, cut into chunks     I used mini chocolate chips
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 f
Cream together the butter with the sugar and mix until light and fluffy, add the egg and vanilla and mix
In a smaller bowl add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt and whisk this together.
Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.  Mix enough to blend, then add the chocolate and mix by hand.
Drop by using a tablespoon or cookie scoop onto a prepared baking sheet.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until light golden brown
I got 26 cookies

Thank you for your visit to the little o' Wednesday baker

  13. I too am not sure what it is about the cornstarch - but it has become my new fave ingredient for CCC! I have another CCC recipe using ww and oat flour that I am going to try mixing the cornstarch into. I love the thicker centers and crispy outsides. They are perfect! Thanks for the great recipe.
