Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 and 1/4 cups (280 grams) all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted

3/4 cup (135 grams) light brown sugar, loosely packed

1/2 cup (100 grams) white sugar

1 egg + 1 egg yolk, room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips (Ghiradelli is my favorite)

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (Ghiradelli is my favorite)


  1. Whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Pour the melted butter into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the light brown sugar and the white sugar, and beat together using the paddle attachment until well combined.
  3. Add in the egg and egg yolk and beat until completely incorporated. Add the vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir together with the paddle attachment on the lowest speed until just combined. Add in 3/4 cup of the mixed chocolate chips, reserving 1/4 cup mixture of semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips for the top of the cookie. Mix until just combined. The dough will be very soft.
  5. Now there are 2 options – option 1 is to chill the dough immediately for 2 hours and up to 3 days (chilling is mandatory for both options). Option 2 is to scoop the dough immediately with an ice cream scoop onto an aluminum foil lined baking sheet and then chill the dough.
  6. Once the dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Take out the dough and let sit out for 10 minutes before using. Scoop the dough with a large ice cream scoop onto two Silpat-lined or parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Alternatively, if you chose to scoop the dough before chilling, simply place the dough onto the two lined sheets. Press the 1/4 cup chocolate chips evenly dispersed between the cookies.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the cookies are light golden brown. Do not overcook, even if they appear under-baked they will continue baking on the baking sheet.
  8. Let cool for 10-15 minutes then move to a cooling rack.
