BEST-EVER Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Readers, whatever you’re doing, stop.  Right now.  Make these cookies NOW.  I promise you won’t be sorry.  Well, you might be because it’ll be near impossible to not eat the entire batch of these incredible cookies.

I know (well, I’ve heard) there are people out there who like crispy cookies.  I’m not one of them.  I like fluffy, soft, chewy cookies–the kind that puff up when they’re baking and barely spread at all.  These cookies are just that.  Perfectly that, in fact.

I already had a really great chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I wanted to give these a shot.  I was a bit skeptical of the recipe when I saw cornstarch in the ingredient list,  but I decided to give them a try.  I know cornstarch is very light and figured that might add some lift to the cookies.  Whether it was the cornstarch or not, thse cookies definitely lifted.  I used a standard-sized cookie scoop to drop them on the cookie sheet and they came out perfectly round and uniform–just ready for a photo shoot.  And so, so good.  The best ever, in fact.  My new favorites πŸ™‚

Best-Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

barely adapted from Anna Olson, Food Network Canada

Ingredients:

3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened

3/4 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. granulated sugar

1 egg

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 c. all purpose flour

2 tsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. bittersweet chocolate chips

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.  In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.

3.  Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chunks.

4.  Using a standard-sized cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges.  (The tops will not brown, but do NOT cook longer than ten minutes.)

5.  Let cool, on the sheet, on a wire rack for five minutes.  Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely.  Makes approximately 3 dozen.  Try not to eat them all.

      chill your dough, especially if you are high altitude

  28. Kelsey
    September 14, 2011 / 9:41 pm

    Jessica, I have a couple of thoughts for you. First off, if your dough is very warm to start with, it is more prone to spreading. Try chilling it for about 30 minutes before scooping out the cookies. On that note, I always scoop my cookies with a standard-sized scoop. It makes a huge difference. You may also want to look at how old your baking powder and soda are. If they are past their expiration, they won't be as effective as leaveners. The powder is the more powerful leavener, but they can both have an effect. Hope this helps!

    @Jessica, that happened to my cookies EVERY. SINGLE. TIME., so I stopped using a mixer (my Bosch). I ALWAYS mix by hand now, and I never have that problem! I've heard it stems from over-mixing, but I couldn't ever figure out the magic number for not over-mixing, so I just stopped altogether. I am making these TONIGHT! (I think I filled my quota on all-caps words there… πŸ˜‰

  36. Kelsey
    September 30, 2011 / 3:53 pm

    Jenny, I did find this recipe made fewer cookies than some others. I think I got about 30-36 cookies from this recipe. I hope you like it!

    These turned out WONDERFUL! For me though it worked better to flatten them just a tad before baking since they didn't spread at all. Look and taste wonderful. Thank you!

  38. Anonymous

    Did anyone notice that the dough seemed extremely dry? I followed the recipe exactly and the dough even had small pieces break off when I scooped it. I used a standard size scoop and the cookies came out in the exact same shape. They absolutely did not flatten. Is it supposed to be this way?

  39. Kelsey
    October 3, 2011 / 6:10 pm

    Anonymous, the dough should not be dry and crumbly. The cookies won't flatten out much, which helps them stay fluffy and soft. Mine did spread a bit from the scoop, however. If you want flatter cookies, you can always wet your fingers a tiny bit and flatten the dough scoops before baking. Is it possible you missed one of the wet ingredients?

    I tried these cookies and for some reason they came out flat…maybe i was scooping too big? I don't know what i did wrong.

  42. Kelsey
    October 6, 2011 / 5:57 pm

    J-Me,These were nice and puffy for me, but I do have three thoughts for flat cookies. First, was the dough already warm when you put it in the oven? Try chilling the dough, which should keep it from spreading. Second, you may have over mixed the dough and therefore deflated it. Finally, I would check the date on your baking soda. If it's past its date, it will not be as effective as a leavener. I hope this helps. Thanks for trying this recipe. If you give it another shot, please let me know how it goes.

      It can also depend on where you live. Elevation makes a big difference. You need to watch your flour amounts if you are lower or higher in elevation than the recipe was written at.

    These were amazing. I used half white and half wheat flour and added a tad less than was called for. I also added some Kraft caramel bits along with the chocolate chips. I like my cookies a tad more flat so I patted down the dough after scooping and they were still nice and soft. I left for a day after making these and my husband ate them all. I tried to see it as a compliment:)

    la femme–It would be an interesting experiment. I used the cake flour sub in cakes, so it stands to reason it would work here provided the proportions are correct.Mary–I'm not entirely familiar with high altitude baking.

    cornstarch is a good way to get the melt in your mouth factor in sugar cookies too, subtracting a bit of flour and replacing it with equal parts corn starch. in chocolate chip cookie recipes i like to subtract a bit of flour and add cornstarch in addition to subtracting a tiny bit of white flour for confectioners flour and you will get the softest cookies you've ever had.

    I have made this recipe NO LESS than 10 times in the past month – they are my FAVORITE cookie right now – just a SUPER CLASSIC cc cookie. I've made them for family, friends, co-workers, a bake sale at school etc. Everyone loves them. I've made them and they turned out flat too but they still tasted great. But agree, putting the dough in the fridge for a bit helps AND one time I was in a hurry and didn't let the butter soften by itself and put it in the microwave and some of it got too soft which changed the texture of the cookie- again still YUMMY!One change I did make was to add a sprinkle of sea salt to the top of the cookie before baking for a nice salty-sweet taste! AMAZING and everyone that tries them is in love. This is my new GO TO recipe for a classic cookie!

    I just tried these today. They are pretty tasty although I don't know if they taste much better than my old standby recipe. I did notice, as someone else said, that the dough seemed more crumbly than normal (and I definitely did not skip any ingredients). It ended up staying together for the most part. The cookies I made look nothing like the cookies in your picture though. Mine basically look like the lump that was scooped out (using a standard scoop) but cooked. I ended up flattening the next round and they still just look like cooked dough (not that this is a bad thing persay — they definitely look homemade, it's just what I was expecting via the picture). I added 1 tsp of cinnamon to mine (I would probably use a little less next time as my other recipe has larger volume) as that is how my great-grandmother used to make hers. This batch made exactly 41 small cookies. Thanks for the recipe!

      Cinnamon acts like a sponge and sucks up as much liquid as it can. Try making the recipe again WITHOUT Cinnamon, and it should be the right consistency.

    These are the best CC cookie, thanks for sharing the recipe!! One tip for those having trouble with the cookies spreading too much during baking is to not let your butter be too soft before making the dough- this causes them to spread more. I only let mine soften on the counter for 30-45 minutes and it seems to be the perfect amount of time. Also, I used salted butter semi-sweet chocolate chips because that's what I had on hand and they turned out great!

    These are in the oven right now. I used half white whole wheat flour and half unbleached all purpose flour. I also used 3/4 cup turbinado sugar and no white sugar. I don't have a stand mixer and used a hand mixer instead. The dough was very crumbly so I added an additional egg. I hope they turn out with all the changes πŸ™‚

Mine fall flat too so I read some of the comments and will try refrigerating the dough next time and hand mixing (yikes!) Overall love them and will try them with various chips such a mint, carmel, etc…thanks for sharing!!

    So good! I love the extra vanilla and bittersweet chocolate chips. I recommend doubling the recipe because after everyone in my family had 2 or 3 there was only a few left. I made 24 cookies, and my butter was too soft, so they did spread a little, but were still delicious.

    These are very tasty. Mine came out flat, though, which is a bummer. Hopefully next time I can figure out how to fix that. Someone mentioned the butter being too soft and overmixing. I'll have to keep that in mind.I find that I only got about 12 cookies from this batch. No idea how other people got 30!

    I found your blog and CCC recipe on Pinterest. I decided to try it today because the CC were on sale LOL. I am not sure if it matters, but I used dark brown sugar because I had exactly 1&1/2 cups left of that (I don't recall your recipe specifying light or dark). I took a shot with my "expired" corn starch LOL and then realized I also used more butter at Thanksgiving than I thought…Soooo… I had to use 1&1/2 sticks (salted) butter, 1&1/4 sticks margarine and 4Tblsp. of OLIVIO–haha! Yes, I'm a bit red in the face at this point, but it's okay to laugh at me! Since I used salted butter I omitted the salt. I also firmly packed all ingredients (I mostly figured I should stay consistent). In the end, after messing up your recipe–they are darn good! They were thick and cakey but not too cakey, just right. I think I would use LIGHT brown sugar next time, seems a little sweeter, right? Anyways, I've never made a CCC recipe that wasn't off the back of a semi-sweet bag, this was a yummy change. Thank you. Oh, I was so glad I read the comments about chilling the dough, I doubled the recipe because I like bigger cookies and cooking time was 10-12 min. Every pan of cookies kept their shape well. Yielded 33 big cookies.

    I made these today and one of my sons said these were the best cookies he's EVER eaten. I only had milk chocolate chips on hand so I cut back on the sugars just a little. I beat the sugar and butter with a hand mixer and then mixed all the other ingredients with a spoon. I chilled the dough for about 30 minutes and used a large tablespoon to scoop onto the cookie sheet. My cookies looked exactly like your picture. They are soft and not too sweet. One batch yielded 24 cookies and there are none left. I plan to make these again this weekend to take to a Christmas party. Thank you for posting such a wonderful recipe

    I need help! I'm not much of a baker but I really wanted to find a good recepie to follow instead of making prepakaged cookies.. I'm a sucker for cookies. Anyway, I love the chunky look to these and the fact that they are chewy. I made them and I swear I followed the recepie but it has an after taste and smells like there is too much of something in it. I know for sure I put in two cups of flour but what if I VERY SLIGHTLY put too much of cornstarch or baking soda? Could that change the taste of it. They look beautiful but I'm not satisfied with how they taste

    Morgan and Nicole, I'm so sorry they didn't turn out for you. My cookies were definitely very puffy; I'm not sure why anyone's would come out flat, crispy, or off balance. What was the batter consistency? Perhaps knowing that will help me give suggestions.

    Mine was literally just the taste that was the problem. They looked perfect and everything else went well. They just didn't taste sweet and tasted more like one of the powder-based items I used. I was just wondering if someone who was more experienced in baking could pick up what the problem might have been. I am going to make them again and very precisely follow the directions. LOVE your recepie though! Can't wait to master it, haha.

    Nicole, how's the quality of your vanilla, and how much did you use? Vanilla can leave an aftertaste, and too much (or too little!) in a recipe can make them taste pretty bad.

    Made these today and wish I had doubled the batch! They won't last very long in my house. My cookies look like your pic and taste great, too. I did sub shortening for butter due to diet restrictions, but don't think it made a difference. Read a few of the comments from others and do know that cornstarch is a tricky ingredient. A little too much can make a big difference. Fresh ingredients can alter the taste and/or fluffiness of the cookies, too. For sweeter taste, I suggest adding a little more vanilla flavor and use milk chocolate chips. Thanks for your post. I've been looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe like this forever!

    Yummmmm! Made with pb chips and choc. chips. They look just as good as the picture and taste amazing! One thing: Do as the recipe says and don't cook for more than 10 min. I cooked mine for 12 for my first batch because they looked pretty doughy, and they were overdone when they cooled. Second batch I took out at just past 9 min. and they were perfect! I am throwing away my other choc. chip cookie recipes:)

    I made these again tonight (even making a batch that were red velvet by adding 1/3 cup of cocoa powder to them plus red food coloring of course-yum!). My only problem with them is that they taste too salty. I use unsalted butter and I follow the measurements, so I'm not sure why I'm getting that overly salty taste.

    I just have to say thank you thank you!! I have been looking for a cookie recipe to make that doesn't come out flat. We are in high elevation right next to the mountains so everything baking wise comes out wrong. These cookies were perfect and just like you said crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle! Do you think it would work with margerine? I dont want to ruin anything but we always have that on hand

  133. Ashley
    January 7, 2012 / 12:55 pm

    I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. My cookies aren't spreading (even a little bit) and are coming out to… dense? I think that's the word. They are just really thick. The flavor is good though. I really like the flavor. I think my flour might be the problem, so I'm going to go buy new stuff and try them again. My husband is eating them even though they aren't coming out as planned. That's a plus! πŸ™‚

  134. Kelsey
    January 9, 2012 / 3:14 am

    Ashley, the cookies don't spread much. Sometimes I flatten the tops just a touch with the palm of my hand. As for the density, I'm guessing you might either be overmixing or using too much flour. When you measure flour, be sure to sift before measuring or just spoon into the measuring cup. This will prevent the flour from becoming too packed in the measuring cup.Kami, I'm glad you enjoyed the cookies! I wouldn't use margarine in them. I think the cookies would spread and not have the same rich taste.

Lol, I have been so frustrated trying to re-make them again I have no idea what I'm doing wrong! I've read thru all the reviews.. flour isn't packed, butter isn't too soft, didn't over mix.. tried mixing them by hand the last time, ended up having to add an egg so the dough wouldn't crumble! The dough has been so dry the past 4 times and I don't know why. I even made my husband try them and he had the same 'dry' problem. If anyone has any advice please tell me before I go insane! The first batch was so so good, I am so angry I haven't been able to re-create them! Thanks in advance!! πŸ™‚

    Hayley, I'm not exactly sure what to say. If they turned out well the first time, you shouldn't need to make any changes. I've made these several times and they've always turned out fine. I'm sorry you're frustrated. I wish I could do more for you, but without seeing what you're doing, it's quite difficult.

  147. Kelsey
    January 17, 2012 / 7:11 pm

    Boxoftrix, I'm not well versed in using UK measurements when baking. If you're weighing the flour, that will be drastically different from using one cup. According to wikianswers, one US cup is equal to 125 grams. I hope this helps.

  148. Boxoftrix
    January 18, 2012 / 1:51 pm

    Hi Kelsey, I added a little milk to bind the mix together and they cooked fine. I re checked the conversion table online and the flou measurment was right but I think I should have used 8oz of butter (I only used 6 oz according to another table) so next time Im sure they will be perfect. Also rather than add the choc chips to the mix I let my 2yr old push them and also smarties onto the top of the cookies they looked great!Thanks!

    These came out SOO good!!! Big hit!!I find that with these, the way they looked when they hit the pan raw really affected the look and to a certain extent, texture, more than the typical chocolate chip cookie. After a lumpy, uneven shaped batch that I put on the pan as regular old two spoon drop cookies, I started shaping them in my 2 TB coffee scoop for perfectly rounded cookies and they came out awesome! (And of course the lumpy slightly ugly ones just meant I couldn't serve them to company and had to eat them myself πŸ˜‰ )

    I made these the other night taking into account all the different comments. I follow the receipt to a 't', using unsalted butter (not too soft), not over-beating the batter, letting the dough chill at least 30 minutes before baking. Mine ended up spreading but not as bad as other cc recipes so that was good. However, the taste was just not a chocolate chip cookie taste to me. It was very 'buttery' tasting and somewhat salty. Any idea what could be wrong? Or is this just a different taste of chocolate chip cookie that I am not familiar with?

  156. Kelsey
    January 26, 2012 / 6:09 pm

    Kim, I don't think I've ever had a chocolate chip cookie I've considered "good" that didn't have a buttery taste. Perhaps it's a preference issue. I'm definitely in the soft and fluffy cookie camp, which these are. They probably won't please a crowd of crispy cookie lovers. As for the salt, feel free to reduce the amount if you felt they were too salty. Hope this helps!

    These were absolutely fabulous and by far the best recipe I've ever made. At Christmas I made a batch from another recipe and they tasted too buttery, flattened and was even embarrassed to call them a chocolate chip cookie. I followed your recipe to a "t", with the exception of using my hand mixer because I was too lazy to use my lovely kitchen aid. They were the perfect cookie! After I scooped each cookie I rolled it in my hand to make a ball and placed it in the cookie sheet. I did not flattened them. They were perfectly fluffy & chewy & pure sweet goodness!

    Beanier, the dough will be on the drier side, so I don't think you did anything wrong. Sometimes I have a few crumbs in the bottom of the bowl. I just leave them there. Many others have added a splash of milk and say that does the trick. If they tasted good, it sounds like you're doing a great job!

    I've never made homemade cookies. When creaming the butter and sugar…..how do I know if I did it right? How long do I stir? Can I do it by hand or can I use a hand mixer?

  184. Kelsey
    February 10, 2012 / 11:48 pm

    hm10–I think it's so cool you've chosen my recipe for your first homemade cookies. Thanks!Creaming butter and sugar basically means mixing them together until they are light and fluffy. If you have an electric mixer, definitely use it. Make sure your butter is room temp, then place both butter and sugar in bowl. Mix on medium-low about one minute, then turn up the mixer to medium for about two minutes more. You should notice the mixture get lighter in color and fluffier in texture. Good luck! Let me know how it goes.

    Hi πŸ™‚ what kind of pan did you use and do you mix the flour, cornstarch and baking soda together before adding to mixer or do you add them separately? I'm trying this now and can't wait! (but I have to wait a little while for my butter to soften cause I forgot to set it out ahead of time!)

  186. Kelsey
    February 12, 2012 / 12:57 am

    Brianne, I used a regular baking sheet lined with a Silpat. As for the dry ingredients, you can mix them together ahead of time or add one at a time. You're mixing them in on the same step, after all.

    I had to try this recipe, and although I am pretty sure I over-softened the butter (put it in microwave…) and they are not as fluffy looking as yours and a little flat, I just ate one and it is DELICIOUS! the taste & texture is perfect!!

    I was looking for a good "base" for an idea I had and this recipe was perfect! Instead of the bittersweet chocolate chips I used 1/2c. butterscotch chips and 1/2c. white chocolate chips. I cut back the salt a little bit, and folded in 1/2c. chopped roasted salted cashews. They came out fantastic! Thanks for the tip on baking time. I didn't think they looked done yet @9mins and was planning to leave them longer, but I'm glad I followed your tips. Thanks very much! These cookies are so silky!

    Hello everybody, I just made the batter for these cookies this afternoon. I'm actually going to let the batter chill overnight. I read a lot of reviews and recipes saying that's the secret trick to a perfect cookie as well. Ot actually allows are the flavors to combine and basically marinade with one another. It also allowtoy our dough to become firm enough when baking to stay puffy. The cookie batter taste absolutely amazing and I'mHoping they come out just as good. I actually doubled the recipe and i also used ghiradelli milk chocolate chips because their much larger than the regular chocolate chips. Also the quality of your chocolate definitely matters when making a chocolate chip cookie. I also added extra vanilla because of personal preference but it truely does make a difference as well. I'm so excited to bake these cookies tomorrow. Thank you so much for the recipe. I'm actually baking them for my boyfriends sick grandfather. They smell delicious. I know he will love them. Goodluck everyone. My batter was not dry at all it was actually wet like any other chocolate chip cookie recipe. Try adding te flour one cup at a time and really mixing it well scraping the sides of the bowl constantly.

  192. Kelsey
    February 18, 2012 / 3:01 pm

    Gabrielle, some recipes do call for chilling the batter. In fact, my other choc chip recipe calls for it. Chilling your batter overnight certainly won't hurt, but the cornstarch in this recipe keeps the cookies light and fluffy without having to chill the batter.I hope your boyfriend's grandfather likes them and that they help bring him back to health. Thanks for reading my blog!

    I just took the first batch out of the oven. they DO come out round & puffy. i used a med. scoop by pampered chef. i normally don't like a 'cake-y' cookie..and prefer mine spread out & undercooked. these are the best of both types…soft, chewy, and moist but thicker like a cakey cookie . i don't think i'll get 3 doz out of the dough, and will most likely double the recipe next time :)Colleen – Iowa

    ….oh…one other comment re: these cookies… i didn't have 2 sticks of butter, so I used 1 stick (1/2cup) and added 1/4 cup butter flavor crisco…. it didn't adversely affect the cookies at all! in fact, i've been told to 1/2 & 1/2 all butter / crisco in cookie recipes to solve the flattening out issue. -ColleenIowa

    I could just cry. We moved to a high altitude a year ago and since then I've not been successful in baking anything. This recipe turned out PERFECT! The cookies held their shape (is that the cornstarch?), didn't burn, stayed soft and chewy, and just became our family's go-to dessert! I just thank you from the bottom of my heart! This means so much to me to be able to not ruin sweet treats for my high-altitude family! THANK YOU!

I used salted butter (all I had) and used milk chocolate chips. I was skeptic about not very many chips but it was perfect for this cookie!

    My first attempt at these cookies is in the oven right now – one batch out already. They taste delicious! But like many others here, mine fell flat. I will try these again and chill my dough before scooping. Out of curiosity, what is a standard scoop? I have a cookie scoop, but I have no idea how big it is. I figured it was standard size though, since I got 35 cookies out of my dough (and probably ate enough dough before baking to make up for that lost cookie). πŸ™‚

  205. Kelsey
    March 3, 2012 / 9:17 pm

    Tracy, if your scoop is labeled as a cookie scoop, you're good to go. The standard scoop I use for cookies is a #40, which means it takes 40 scoops to make a quart.

    These are great! I get what some of the commenters are saying about the batter being dry — it seems that way especially when first adding in the dry ingredients, but I just kept mixing it (by hand) and eventually everything creamed together. I did a calorie count (using nestle semi-sweet chips, b/c that's what I had in the house) and came up with 101 calories per cookie for a batch of 40 cookies! It comes out even higher if you do like I did, and you halve the recipe and forget to halve the amount of chips you add!!! Whoops! πŸ™‚

    S,The cornstarch definitely helps with the fluffiness. I've had cookies with vanilla pudding in them and I don't care for them. I know lots of other people like them, though. Maybe you could add some to half the batch for a comparison!

They haven't even cooled all the way and I've eaten three. I can't wait until they are "DONE". So, mine are a little flat. I don't mind that so much. I will try to chill the dough next time and not work over the hot stove. Thank you so much for this recipe!

    Best cookies ever. I finally got around to baking these today. I made some mistakes in my haste to devour cookies. (I was having a strong craving for sweets.) I softened the butter in the microwave, probably TOO much. Also, my baking soda may have been on the old side. EVEN SO, these are the most chewy and delicious cookies I've ever eaten. Mine didn't turn out huge and fluffy, but they are amazing all the same. I believe I can rectify my rookie mistakes and make them even better the next time.

    I accidentally used baking powder instead of baking soda, but no worries, they were still delicious – just a bit puffier than the picture πŸ™‚ Maybe I'll have to try it again with baking soda – y'know, for research πŸ˜‰

    Yup. These definitely worked and were GOOOOOOOD. I always have a problem with my cookies flattening out but these stayed puffy, soft, chewy, and wonderful! They looked picture perfect! So easy too. I also let my egg get to room temperature before mixing it in, and chilled the dough for 30 minutes before baking. Thanks so much! Cornstarch…who knew? πŸ™‚

    This is now my go-to cookie recipe. I have made this EVERY DAY this week. I'm not kidding! I use M&Ms, because that's what my kids and their friends prefer, but otherwise I follow the recipe exactly. I love the consistency of these cookies. Thanks so much!

    So I had to try this recipe! The first time I made them I was immediatly hooked. They looked picture perfect and had a wonderful fluffy consistency (everything you could ever want in a traditional chocolate chip cookie) BUT….I have made them now twice since and have not been so lucky. I am a cookie snob and I really want to make them like the first time because they were awesome! My last 2 batches appeared greasy, flat, and under cooked. I am a regular cookie baker…I just can't seem to figure out what I have done wrong. My butter rested on the counter for a 1/2 hour, my soda is new and I even chilled my dough before scooping it. Feeling stumped cause I know how awesome they can be!

    I'm sorry you haven't had the same success as you did the first time you made them. You mentioned you are a regular baker and it sounds as if you worked correctly with your butter and other ingredients. Do you think it's possible the summer humidity had anything to do with it? I live in Phoenix and have made the cookies in summer months, but humidity really isn't an issue here.

    itsmenicole & hayley I am having a problem with the dough being a little dry & "floury" tasting. I double checked all the exp dates & they're fine. At first, I added just a splash of milk b/c when I licked the beater it tasted like the flour wasn't properly incorporated. But, after 1 batch it still has a "floury" taste too it. I already added the chips, so can I try added another egg? I'm a novice baker, but I've never experienced this b4 & the only thing I've seen online is too add oil (which sounds like a bad idea since there is no oil in this recipe). Can anyone help?

    These really are the best cookies I've ever had, just like everyone else. I have made them a few times and have found that are so much better (Is that even possible?) after being refrigerated overnight. It makes the perfect cookie: dense, rich, and extra chewy.

    The reason the cornstarch helps make the cookies even more tender than those with all flour, is that it absorbs liquid, but it can't make gluten, and so long as it's evenly distributed, it'll help prevent the flour from making gluten as well. So, should you find yourself wishing a baked good was a little bit more tender, next time try subbing out a little bit of flour and exchanging it for cornstarch. Also, more fat and more sugar are going to make cookies spread and make them crisper. More eggs and flour will make them puffier. There is a more scientific reason for all of this, but I'm too tired to go into it. πŸ™‚

    I made these a few weeks ago and they turned out completely flat (I put 3/4 of a stick of butter instead of 3/4 of a cup- HUGE difference), but still yummy. I knew I had done something wrong, so I tried again tonight. They came out absolutely perfect and I can't stop eating them. Definitely a recipe for the books.

    I have made these three or four times now – they turn out perfect EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. My daughter and I can't keep them in the house for more than three days, which means I can't make them very often or I risk gaining far too much weight! (though they taste SO GOOD that the extra weight may be worth it!).

    I made these last week and they were AMAZING! My husband wanted to make dinner for some people who were working at his job overnight tonight. Well, you can't bring them dinner without dessert, right? Using a large scoop instead of a standard one will get you about 16 big ol cookies. But since There are 9 people working overnight, and only 16 cookies, I guess I'll just *have* to make another batch so everyone can have 2 cookies. What's a family of 3 to do with these extra cookies?!?! Oh, hey, can you pass me that milk, please?

    nom nom nom. Baby was sick today so I stayed home with him and made these while he napped. I didn't have any brown sugar on hand so I made these with plain white, granulated sugar and I mixed by hand instead of using a mixer. And, for some reason, I had to bake these for about 15 minutes to get them right. Hands down the best cookies I have ever made! So soft, chewy, moist with just that tiny bit of crisp on the outside! I can't wait to make these for my husband!!!

I let me first dozen go 30 seconds longer and they came out great but a tad drier that my other 2 dozen! I actually love these cookies more after they have completely cooled!!! Oh and I added more chocolate chips to the batter before I made my 2nd and 3rd dozen!! I like a little more chocolate!! lol … who doesn't right? By far a great recipe and its a nice take on a classic chocolate chip cookie!! I will be using this base to make other versions for Christmas!Thanks for posting!

    Just made these this weekend while we were stuck inside the home due to Hurricane Sandy. They were delicious! However, 2 things: 1, they did NOT look as pictured. Instead, they were round and puffy, like mini-bites. 2, it took some pushing to get people to try them because they looked underdone from the top! I guess that is a personal preference, though. My family usually likes really browned cookies. Or, the Break 'n Bakes πŸ˜‰ I just told people to look on the bottom and they could see that it was browned. Once they tried it, they loved 'em! But it did take some convincing. Great recipe overall – I look forward to making them again!

    I made this, and definitely enjoyed them…I mean they are COOKIES after all. Just wanted to add my two cents in that I would not consider these cookies chewier. I would consider them "cake-ier" if you will. I think for the amount of butter that is called for in this recipe, I'd rather just stick to ole' faithful and slightly undercook them for the gooey/chewy factor I prefer. Glad I tried them, and if you like a cake-ier type cookie you will LOVE these.

    I have been looking for a really good chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe for a while now and ran across your site. I made them last night and they turned out quite well, though I didn't use the cornstarch and the cookies taste just perfectly without it. They still held their shape and the texture is still oh so chewy. I will, also, add that I did overcook the last pan because I was dealing with a personal issue and those had a darker color to them but still were definitely chewy, just a little less so than the others. Thanks for the recipe!

    I am not normally a fan of chocolate chip cookies, but boy did these win me over!! A new family favorite. I love that they are thick, but not cakey, moist and chewy. Yum! I don't normally make cookies often, but my 2nd batch this week just came out of the oven. This time I replaced 1/4 cup of the butter with creamy peanut butter. I would let you know how they are, but they are still too dang hot! Anyway, awesome recipe! Found you on pinterest.

    My 7-year-old daughter has been wanting to make chocolate chip cookies all on her own and I chose this recipe for her because I've never tried one with cornstarch. She made them easily and they tasted fabulous! They were the best chocolate chip cookies I've eaten since I myself was about 7 years old and sampled my babysitter's grandma's chocolate chip cookies, which for nearly 30 years I've considered the best I've ever had. Thanks for sharing this recipe; it is now my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies! Simply brilliant! πŸ™‚

    I made these tonight. I wasn't sure they would turn out because I used a hand mixer and it was slow going to get the butter & sugar "fluffy & light", not to mention the mess it made, lol. I even hesitated to bake more than one batch in case I had to just accept defeat & eat the dough, which I thought was a little dry, too salty. I thought "too much flour". I bakes them for 9 minutes & still thought, these are undercooked but after letting them cool for as long as my taste buds & curiosity would let me (about four minutes), they were phenomenal!!! Probably the best cookies I've ever eaten, certainly the best I've ever made. They were so good & had I had a stand alone mixer, they would have been very easy.

    Beanier-Thanks for the tip about adding a splash of milk! My butter wasn't quite soft enough so my dough was SO crumbly! I added a couple of tablespoons of milk (just a splash) and voila! I had dough rather than crumbles. We live at a high altitude and this recipe was just fine as is!

    I love this dough. I made it the first time and they are the best cookies I have ever had. I am having a problem though, the last two times I have made them, the dough has ended up so dry that I end up making bars instead because the cookies do not stay together. I check and check a million times and I am not messing up any ingredients. Last time it was so crumbly I even added extra liquid and it still did not work. What am I doing wrong?

  349. Kelsey
    January 27, 2013 / 10:14 pm

    bobbi–I've never had my dough so dry it won't come together. If I have a few crumbles in the bottom of the mixing bowl, I just leave them there. Make sure you aren't packing your flour into your measuring cups. You either want to whisk it before measuring to incorporate some air into it or spoon it into the measuring cup. Others have said they add 1-2 TBSP of milk, but I've never done that. Hope that helps!

    These are nice looking cookies, but not as good as they look. Had a recipe for years that my family just loves and thought I would try something different but will stick with the old tried and true favorite, as these seemed too salty even though I cut back on salt, and took longer than recipe stated to get done completely.My son stated they tasted as though something was missing even though the recipe was followed. Thanks anyway.

    These are indeed "best ever" chewy chocolate chip cookies. I just finished making a batch and love these. Thanks! The only thing I did different was the type of chocolate chips…I used mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. My oven may be off a bit too, I had to bake for 12-14 minutes instead. Cookies turned out wonderfully soft and chewy.

  361. Jenn

    First off – my cookie dough was pretty "dry" so I added about 1-2 TBSP to help make the cookie dough bind together better. We thought the cookies were INCREDIBLY sweet. I'm wondering if I somehow mis-measured my sugars, because they were VERY VERY sweet. I did use milk chocolate chips (ghiradelli) and those are pretty large and very sweet in comparison to for instance, hersheys or nestle toll house. I'm planning to make some more (possibly tonight) and will carefully measure my sugar ingredients and then use semisweet chocolate chips to see if that helps. Either way, we devoured the batch of cookies already! πŸ˜‰

  362. Kelsey
    March 1, 2013 / 2:41 pm

    Jenn, using milk chocolate chips (and large ones, at that) would definitely make the cookies much sweeter. I'm not one for overly sweet desserts and I don't think the cookies are super sweet when made with semisweet chips. I'm glad you still liked them and hope your next batch turns out even better!

    Thank you for this "new" chocochip recipe… I just finished whipping these up… in fact I still have a pan in the oven. When I bake cookies I always use a standard cookie scoop for uniform shape… and this recipe yielded 26 cookies… We enjoyed the warm cookies right out of the oven and I'm sure we'll enjoy the rest. Again, thank you for the recipe!

    I just made these…added a cup of toasted pecans because chocolate chip cookies without nuts make me sad. The dough was a nice consistency and the spread was perfect. In fact, my cookies look just like yours. Yay! They are quite delicious, but I have to say I prefer Ghirardelli's recipe. They are crispier around the edges, yet stay soft and chewy in the middle. Thank you for the great recipe!

    I just made these and they turned out wonderfully delicious!!!! My only problem was that I left them in the oven a little longer because when I took them out after 10 minutes they crumbled (I accidentally crushed one while avoiding getting burned, it was almost raw on the inside). I also added a little touch of my own… Instead of adding 1C of chocolate, I added 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of toffee bits… I think it worked great!!! hank you for sharing this recipe, I'll certainly try it again.

    what do you think elevation does to this recipe? I live near Calgary, AB and tried this recipe a couple days ago and the dough was extremely dry and crumbly! I added some more butter (about 1/4 cup – all I had left) and the dough formed a bit better – enough to scoop it with a cookie scoop and turn onto a cookie sheet…they didn't flatten at all while baking, they remained nice domed little cookies. They still tasted great, just not sure why the dough was so dry! I double checked the ingredients, I'm pretty sure I didn't miss anything…any ideas?

    I just made these cookies and they didn't spread out at all (very small and dense). I mixed by hand – no mixer. The bottoms baked much faster than the tops, so the next time I will use parchment paper when I bake them. I used margarine instead of butter, eliminated the granulated sugar, and cut the salt by 1/4 tsp. I like the way they taste. I think the cornstarch makes them unique – in a good way. I'll be posting these cookies on my blog tomorrow πŸ™‚ http://thejoyofcaking.wordpress.com

  371. Kelsey
    March 25, 2013 / 12:39 am

    Wild Rose, the dough on these should look a bit on the dry side–mine always does. If it is just too dry to even form cookies, try adding milk, one TBSP at a time. I've had some readers do that and they said it worked perfectly.As for elevation, I've had readers who live in high altitude areas who have actually said this recipe is one of the only ones that works consistently for them. I don't have too many suggestions for high-altitude baking because I've never done it. Wish I could help more!

I've only made the mistake twice ha ha I'd rather just use a little muscle mixing ;0)

    Let us simply put that Cooking is like Engineering Design, why? Because in every dish that you prepare must be presentable, creatively designed, taste good, and basically it must be done with speed and precision. Cooking is like an Art, where everything is uniquely combined, the best selection of ingredients, processed with right timing and temperature so that whatever you prepare is a work of Art. Creativity in cooking depends on how an Artist (Chef) modifies the recipe that every detail must be in one direction because each individual has their own taste preferences.

    These came out perfect – they even had a nice shape to them. It makes a nice amount of dough, so I froze 1/3, baked about 1/3 (which made 12 cookies) and have 1/3 in the fridge to make fresh cookies again tomorrow. Mine turned out perfect at 6 minutes of cooking time.

The metal works much better (I line with parchment paper for easy clean-up). I also used milk chocolate chips (the whole bag!!) the first time because I'm a chocoholic.

I have looked and looked for a chocolate chip cookie that was soft and "doughy" without being a flat mess. This recipe was what I have been looking for…thanks!

    I've made these cookies twice now and the dough is incredibly dry and looks like sand. They taste good, stayed puffy (didn't spread at all), but I have to really squish the dough together in my hands just to try to get it to stick together to bake them. I didn't miss any ingredients. Would adding an egg or more butter be a good fix?

I add just a PINCH for flour and I don't "sift" it and my cookies have been fluffy and wonderful ever since!Thank you so much for sharing! πŸ™‚

    Doubled the recipe and used slightly less white sugar and chocolate chips, and slightly more salt as well as salted butter (I like salty-sweet cookies rather than excessively sweet), and…Oh. My. God. These are phenomenal!! Chewy and soft and puffy right out of the oven, and when cooled they're crisp (but not crunchy) and soft on the inside. Just perfect. That cornstarch must be the secret, because these stayed puffy and held their shape/body – I hate flat cookies!Thank you for the awesome recipe!!

    I've made these cookies several times after seeing this post and they are an absolute hit every time! However, I'm running into a small issue that I cannot solve myself.. The first several times I made these, they sort of "deflated" after I took them out of the oven to look like the ones in the picture but more recently they just stay little round balls.. I don't know if I'm adding too much or too little of something or if it's the size of the cookie..Suggestions?

    I made these yesterday and they turned out fantastic! Very tender and fluffy. Who knew that just a smidgen of cornstarch could make such a big difference. Excellent!

    Hannah, I'm so glad you love these cookies! I've noticed the same thing you have–sometimes the cookies don't spread and deflate quite as much. I've noticed the temperature and humidity have a lot to do with the cookies. When I make them, I scoop out the balls, then lightly press them down just a bit before baking. This seems to solve the problem no matter the weather. Hope it helps!

    Made these cookies after finding the recipe on Pinterest. They are seriously the best cookies I've ever had! They're so easy to make, bake quickly, and are absolutely delicious!!!

    I have been making these cookies for awhile and they are my favorite! I made them today though and they turned out flat and not at all like they used to. Did you change the recipe? Help!!

    I'm not sure if I posted a comment when I originally made these 2 YEARS AGO… well, I am not sure how many times I have shared the recipe with others. I swear to you when I say I have NEVER EVER EVER found a successful recipe that for 1. actually makes soft cookies and 2. doesn't spread over the pan regardless of margarine vs butter or anything else. I have NEVER EVER EVER made another choc chip recipe since this 2 years ago. It has NEVER EVER EVER failed me and I will NEVER EVER EVER try another recipe again!!!! You have NO IDEA the kind of love I (more like my family) has for you just over this recipe!!!! <3 I cannot thank you enough for sharing this!!!!!

    I just read a few comments and noticed some people are having issues with theirs not spreading and staying into little balls kind of…. I had this issue ONCE and I know it was my fault. I believe the flour isn't being measured right. I have bought myself a digital scale and weight EVERYTHING I use to bake (except anything that is measured by the spoon)

    I see a lot of recipes using unsalted butter, then I notice that salt is added to the same recipe. I don't do enough with unsalted butter to warrant buying it for one recipe, can I substitute salted butter and leave out the adding of salt?

    This has been my "go-to" chocolate chip cookie recipe since we first stumbled upon it. We always double the recipe because they go so fast. Thanks retroactively for posting it. πŸ™‚

    Can't remember if I ever came back to post a comment about these cookies or not, so just in case….. These really ARE the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. Since I pinned the recipe two years ago, they are the only ones I make, and they are always a hit. I have to double the recipe because they go so fast. Great job!

    Leigh,Congratulations on your wedding! These cookies freeze beautifully. In fact, I've made many a batch and frozen them ahead of time. I even like to bake a batch and have them in the freezer to snack on any time I want just one cookie.
