chewy chocolate chip cookies

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE! I don't know about you guys, but our house is always filled with cookies and all kinds of sweets during the holidays! It's actually one of our traditions to make all different kinds of biscotti and send them out to our family! So obviously, one of the first things I did when I got home was bake. I have about a hundred different chocolate chip cookie recipes saved, all with just the slightest difference. So I figured now would be a good time to try one out! I used chocolate chips for some, and also used some Andes mint baking chips, because I had them and wanted to use them!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe from Apple A Day)
3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened 
3/4 c. brown sugar 
1/4 c. granulated sugar 
1 egg 
2 tsp. vanilla extract 
2 c. all purpose flour 
2 tsp. cornstarch (<-- the magic ingredient!)
1 tsp. baking soda 
1/2 tsp. salt 
1 c. bittersweet chocolate chips (or really, whatever you want to mix in!)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.  In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.

3.  Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chunks.

4.  Using a standard-sized cookie scoop or tablespoon (or just be like me and use your hands #oldschool), drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges.  (The tops will not brown, but do NOT cook longer than ten minutes.)

5.  Let cool, on the sheet, on a wire rack for five minutes.  Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely.

Have fun baking!

  2. Yum! Love the idea of adding Andes mint chips, plus the red is a fun Christmasy touch. It really is funny just how many different recipes there are for the same cookie. Happy Christmas Eve! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
