  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled at least 10 minutes (226g)
  • 1 ¼ cup brown sugar* tightly packed (250g)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (100g)
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk room temperature preferred*
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour (350g)
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips (70g) plus additional for topping, optional
  • cup white chocolate chips (70g) plus additional for topping, optional
  • 3-4 Tablespoons red white and blue sprinkles


  • Combine your melted (and cooled) butter and sugars in a large bowl and stir until well-combined.
  • Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and stir until combined. 
  • In a separate, medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Gradually add dry ingredients to wet and mix until combined.
  • Stir in semisweet and white chocolate chips.
  • Add sprinkles and use a spatula to fold into the batter.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350F (175C) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Once oven has preheated, remove your chilled cookie dough from the freezer and roll dough into approximately 2-Tablespoon-sized scoops. Roll gently to form a ball and place on prepared cookie sheet (space cookies at least 2" apart). 
  • Bake on 350F (175C) for 10-11 minutes, centers of the cookies may still seem slightly underbaked -- allow cookies to cool completely on cookie sheet to finish cooking there, this will help keep them nice and soft. 
  • If desired, gently nestle additional chocolate chips and white chocolate chips into the tops of each cookie within 1 minute of coming out of the oven.


*Light or dark brown sugar (or a mix of both) will work well for this recipe
