Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yesterday I was looking for a treat to make for my Cub Scouts. I didn’t have a lot of time and I wanted to make something that even the pickiest eaters would like, so I turned to Pinterest. I’ve been seeing this recipe pop up on pinboards almost every day with the title “secret ingredient, you’ll never guess!” Well, I checked out the recipe, read the reviews and decided to give it a try. And guess what? They’re REALLY good!!! Stephen said they tasted like bakery cookies, hence the title 🙂 I had no idea that cornstarch was even used in baked goods, but it worked wonders. I altered the recipe slightly, here is my version:

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter - softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars. Add vanilla and egg, mix until incorporated.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, sift flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Mix in dry ingredients, one cup at a time, until smooth. 
  • Add chocolate chips, fold in.
  • Place cookies on sheet using a standard scoop. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. (Since I made giant cookies I used 2 scoops of dough, patted them together, put 6 on a sheet, and baked them for 14 minutes).
  • Remove from oven and let cool on sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Yum! These looks REALLY good! I’ve never used cornstarch in my cookie making. Maybe its time to give it a try!
