  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled to room temperature (226g)
  • 1 cup brown sugar¹ firmly packed (200g)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar 150g
  • 1 large egg room temperature preferred
  • 1 large egg yolk room temperature preferred
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour 350g
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips -- I recommend using ½ cup each of mini regular, and jumbo semisweet chocolate chips (255g)


  • Combine melted/cooled butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a large bowl and stir well.
  • 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 flour mixture to butter mixture, stirring until completely combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Cover cookie dough with plastic wrap and transfer to refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • About 15 minutes before dough is finished chilling, preheat oven to 350F (175C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper².
  • Once dough has chilled and oven has preheated, remove cookie dough from fridge and scoop ½ cup (yes, cup!) of dough and roll into a round ball.
  • Place cookie dough on prepared baking sheets, spacing several inches apart.
  • Transfer to 350F (175C) oven and bake 14-16 minutes or until edges are beginning to turn golden brown.
  • Allow cookies to cool completely on baking sheet before removing and enjoying.



¹Light or dark brown sugar will work well in this recipe. I personally like to use a 50/50 mix of the two.
²If you don’t have parchment paper you can just bake cookies directly on an ungreased cookie sheet
