Soft Batch Style Chocolate Chip 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.

    Jenny – I made these this morning and they just didn’t come out right I followed the recipe exactly. I am a little confused about the butter. Is the recipe for 1 stick and 1/2 cup of butter or are you just indicating that 1 stick is a half a cup…kind of confusing. I don’t know what went wrong. The dough was really crumbly and the cookies didn’t stay together. Some of the cookies on the sheet were under cooked and some were over cooked. Ugh, I really wanted these to work!

      Hi Samantha, it is just 1 stick of butter which is also equal to 1/2 cup. I wonder what went wrong, I make this recipe all of the time.

    Hi, i’ve read some blogs where they suggest to keep the dough in the fridge for awhile before baking. Is it a need to do that for your recipe?

    These cookies are amazing! I just baked a batch, but I used a mixture of chocolate chips and chopped Reese’s peanut butter eggs as I’m trying to get rid of some Easter candy. Hands down the best chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever made!
