When I was pregnant with both my boys there was one thing I was ALWAYS craving... chocolate chip cookies. There were several nights I would start a batch at 10 or 11 o'clock just because I knew I'd want them in the middle of the night. After trying several recipes I found this one via Pinterest from Apple A Day and fell in love! This is my go to recipe now and the only chocolate chip recipe I will ever make (unless of course something better comes along ;) )
3/4 cup (1 1/2 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt (I use salted butter so I don't use salt here)
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix together butter and sugars.
Stir in egg and vanilla.
Mix in cornstarch, baking soda and flour.
Cut in chocolate chips. (I usually use full size chocolate chips but grabbed the wrong bag at the store this last time.)
Place by the teaspoonful on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are lightly brown. Don't over bake these... when you take them out they won't look done but they are. If you wait too long you will lose the moisture.
Let cool on sheet for 5 minutes and then move to cooling rack.
This batch usually makes 4 dozen cookies for me; you may make more or less, depending on the size of your teaspoon.
