On Tuesday, I unknowingly misplaced a valuable item and had no idea that I had left it behind until I received a phone call today from the information booth on campus, telling me that they had it and that I could come and pick it up at my earliest convenience.
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips (I used half white chocolate and half semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350. Sift flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla until completely incorporated. Add flour mixture in 3 additions; scraping down the bowl after each addition. Mix in chocolate chips.
Either grease cookie sheets or cover in parchment paper. Drop 1 tablespoon-sized balls onto cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Be prepared for these cookies to spread! Bake 8-10 minutes in preheated oven. (Actually, they spread quite a bit more than I like, even after I refrigerated the dough. They are wonderfully chewy, but thin and fragile. I'll have to dry these again!)
Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
