Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on 18 Dec 2013

This is my recipe for classic chocolate chip cookies, but I’ve thrown in a couple methods of mine that make more successful than most. One of the first mistakes a lot of people make is not chilling their cookie dough (this goes for all cookies). Chilling the dough ensures they all bake to the even sizes and don’t spread too much while baking (as the butter will have mostly solidified again).

Yield 3 dozen cookies
Cook Time 12-15 minutes


The addition of cornstarch is something I do differently from some recipes; the cornstarch helps keep moisture in the cookie and thus keeps the end result moister (duh) after baking.


If you’re really patient, you can portion and then freeze the cookies before baking. Although, if you’re using the dough from frozen, allow it thaw at room temperature for about 20 minutes before baking.
