  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips divided


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Place the butter in a small microwaveable bowl and melt. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt until evenly combined; set aside
  • In another mixing bowl, cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing just until incorporated. Stir in vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture mixing just until incorporated. Mix in 2 cups of chocolate chips until evenly combined.
  • Scoop the dough using a medium cookie scoop onto the prepared baking sheet placing 2 inches apart.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden and the centers are still soft. Do not overbake!
