Soft Batch Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tags:

Cookies

Cookies cookies cookies!  I’m a cookie baking fool, no doubt about it. Now, I know it’s still January and we’re all trying to watch what we’re eating, but chocolate chip cookies do not get removed from my diet….ever.  It’s just not allowed.

When I was browsing around Pinterest last week, I was intrigued when I cookies that had cornstarch added to cookie dough.  I had to try it!  I whipped up my own recipe with some added cornstarch and I have to say I love how soft and fabulous they turned out!  So….I call them my soft batch style cookies :)

Try them for yourself and see how you like em!

Scoop your dough as usual onto your favorite cookie sheet.

Press your dough down slightly like so before baking.

Here’s what you get.  Heaven.

The texture to these cookies are quite fabulous.  Get baking!

This batch was baked for 10 minutes exactly.  Slightly underdone which makes them soft and lovely.  I did another batch at about 13 minutes which was browned and firmer.  I enjoyed both batches, lol!  Try one of each and see what you like.

    I made almost this exact recipe a couple months ago! The cornstarch cookies have changed my life! I tweaked it by using a combo of bread flour and allpurpose, and chocolate chips and chunks, but the dough base in the same. Yours look so good!

    Sigh… SIGH….. What I would give for a dozen of these and a tall frosty glass of milk!

  14. 14

    Man, sometimes a soft chewy cookie really hits the spot. I still think my favorite is more of a classic chocolate chip cookie but a soft one now and then certainly doesn’t hurt.

    Yum yum yum.

    mmmmm soft cookies are my favorite!! can’t wait to give these a try! Thanks lady!!

    i have been dying to try this cornstarch “trick”. after seeing these I realize I need to get on it NOW. these look amazing.

  26. 26

    Interesting… I’ve never seen a non gluten-free cookie recipe with corn starch… brilliant. In gluten-free baking, it gives things a nice ‘chew’ factor. I didn’t think gluten containing cookies would need them because of the natural glue from the gluten would do the trick. Will definitely have to share this little tid bit!

    oh man, I said I was going to do better in the coming weeks about eating sweets – I’m 26 weeks pregnant so I know I’ll need to be checked for gestational diabetes soon, AND I just ate about 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies that I made last week all by myself. I think I’ll just bookmark this recipe for February :)

    Keep ‘em comin’!

    Those look wonderful! Soft and chewy just like a good cookie should be.
    Thanks for sharing,

    Hmmm…I wonder how well that would work for a peanut butter cookie?

  30. 30

    I’ve seen the cornstartch addition but haven’t tried it myself. However, I think we all know that I am going to need to after staring at these cookie pictures :) Thanks for the recipe!

    As I was in the middle of making cupcakes once, I realized I didn’t have enough eggs. I googled egg substitutes and corn starch came up. I subbed some of the eggs for the cornstarch, and they came out so moist and soft! Hadn’t thought to try it with cookies, really looking forward to trying these!

  32. 32

    Love soft cookies and these look perfect, Jenny! I’m going to have to make a batch asap.

  33. 33

    These look great! I love a soft and chewy cookie.

  34. 34

    Those look fabulous! I am surprised that simply adding a bit of cornstarch makes them so soft. I will definitely try these.

  35. 35

    These are on my baking list for this week end! Love!

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for this recipe! I just made it for my roommate and boyfriend, and my boyfriend just said,”I think my grandmother just rolled over in her grave, these are the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had.” I hope this is the tipping point that leads to the ring?

    Megan says:

    The cookies are very tasty but mine did not turn out soft! Any idea about how that could have happened? I followed the recipe and measured exactly.

    I also added a teaspoon of cream of tartar and increased the mixing times for the first and second mixings. My sister in law taught me both of those techniques and they really help to keep the dough soft. These were great cookies. Thanks for the recipe!
