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

Soft Batch Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

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. Store your cooled, leftover cookies into an air tight container. Try chilling in the refrigerator. They’re amazing cold too. Enjoy!

    Found this recipe on yummly. These cookies are delicious! The cornstarch makes them soft and not crunchy. Took these to an event tonight and they all got eaten. Enjoy!

  2. Laura

    These are the best!! I don’t know what it is in the recipe that makes these so delicious but I can honestly say that these are better than the toll house chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  3. Hana

    I have been looking for a good recipe for a while, and I’ve tried so many! This one is perfect! The cookies, came out perfect. Thank you!

  4. Jessica

    Just made these, very tasty! Little disappointed they didn’t stay soft once cooled, next time I will cook for 9 min lol. Will be baking these again though 🙂

  5. Maria

    These are by far the best chocolate cookies I’ve ever made…and tasted!!! These will be my “go-to” from now on. Thanks!!!

  6. Rute

    These cookies r delish! Added a third of the sugar and half the choc chips, but also used mini, also substituted cashew meal for half of the flour. Absolutely delicious! Thank you!!!

  7. Michele

    I am in search for my perfect cookie recipe, which is a soft/chewy on the inside, kinda crispy on the outside, and flat/thin and so I found this on pintrest and it looked really good and easy to make. I just made these and it didn’t look as flat as the ones in the pictures (which is understandable since you never said this is supposed to be super flat) but holy cow these tasted great and they’re so soft it just melts in your mouth. Everybody loves these and they still look great AND it stays soft for days. Thank you for the recipe! If I don’t find a better recipe, which I doubt I will, this is definitely THE ONE.

  8. Katheryn

    My husband and I have been on the search for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. After what seems like a billion recipes, I came across this one tonight… HANDS DOWN the absolute best cookies we’ve made!

  9. Linda Ripp

    Man…..major fail. One huge mess. DON’T make this at all………..somebody’s idea of a joke, I suppose.

  10. I’ve been looking for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe for a long time, and after discovering this recipe, I’ve finally found it! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe!

    These also taste AMAZING with one cup of caramel bits and one cup of chocolate bits! — so so so good!

  11. Judy

    I think I just found the holy grail chocolate chip cookies! Just made a batch of these and they were amazing! It was a bit too much chocolate chips for me though, so I’ll cut down a bit on that next time. Pinning this for future baking! Thanks 🙂

  12. Jessica Stauber

    Just made these for my younger brother’s varsity football banquet. My new ABSOLUTE favorite classic chocolate chip cookie recipe and go-to from now on! SO delicious and gooey!

  13. Shelly

    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!

  14. Anne Marie

    These are fantastic. I love this recipe, it’s my new go to for chocolate chip!! I was even inspired to make a giant cookie using this recipe and everyone that came over for Easter loved it.

    Thanks so much Jenny.

  15. Bia

    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?

  16. Jess

    Making these while stuck inside becuase of the blizzard. Didn’t have 2 cups of chocolate chips so I am adding toffee, one cup of each chocolate chips and toffee..can’t wait to see how they come out!

  17. Samantha

    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!

  18. Tabitha

    I made these cookies for my family on Sunday, they were gone by Monday evening. We all agree these were the best chocolate chip cookies ever!

  19. Melissa L.

    Just found your site today thanks to my sister….these look delicious so i just whipped them up and they are baking right now! I was a little short on both sugars but that’s okay…can’t wait to try them!

    1. Melissa L.

      I’m back! They are done, made exactly as directed – cooked 12 minutes and they are perfect! Thanks for the recipe, this is replacing my old chocolate chip cookie recipe!

  20. Sarah

    These were great! I made them tonight except I used 1 cup of dark chocolate chips and 1 cup of semi-sweet! They were the perfect chewiness!

  21. Sara K

    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!

  22. Megan

    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.

  23. Kate

    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?

  24. Glenda

    I knew I had to bake these when I saw your new post. Baked them & they are really good! Tagged you to a picture of these awesome cookies on instagram & so happy you left a comment. Thank you for the recipe!!

  25. Sarah

    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!

  26. Megan

    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’!

  27. 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!

  28. 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!
