I want to start out by saying these are literally THE BEST cookies you will ever make. So good I made over 50 dozen for Tanners teammates during the NY Jets training camp. Yep, that isn't a typo....50 DOZEN plus. Needless to say the word got out and I was busy! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as they did.
To bake the cookies lets start out by turning our oven on to 350 degrees F, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. ***TIP: foil will burn the bottom of your cookies, ALWAYS use parchment paper.
You can either use a standing mixer or a hand held mixer to make these. To my standing mixer I add butter and sugar to the bowl. Cream those together for 1-2 minutes or until combined.
Next add your egg and vanilla extract to the sugar mixture. Mix that for 1-2 minutes or until combined.
While that is mixing find a small mixing bowl and add your dry ingredients to it...flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture until it is all combined.
Finally stir in your chocolate chips, or turn your mixer on low and slowly pour them into the cookie mixture.
When placing the cookie dough on the parchment paper, I normally drop about a tablespoon size worth of dough onto the paper. These cookies hold their shape pretty well, so you don't have to worry about them running into each other while baking.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and place cookies onto a cooling rack. Enjoy!!!
Big Ben...aka cookie monster!
Tez and Tanner taking time after practice with some of our kids from our youth football camp! I would say Tez earned the extra cookies.
