Fluffy Chocolate chip cookies with a bite taken out

I am going to be honest here, I am a cookie fanatic and these cookies are AMAZING!!  Some warm fluffy chocolate chip cookies with a cold glass of milk is pure heaven for this girl. I am getting over a little illness and needed some comfort food…AKA chocolate chip cookies. One of our local super markets has these cookies in their bakery called muffin top cookies that are basically a fluffy cake like cookie. I have been on a quest to figure out how to make something similar . I have searched the internet on how to make cookies fluffier and came up with several ideas. One of the more interesting things I found was adding cornstarch to the flour mixture. I read it would soften the protein in the flour and make a more tender cookie. This little trick plus extra baking powder seems to have worked beautifully. I took my basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and altered it a bit and the results were fluffy, soft and super yummy. Another great cookie to try is Banana Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

These cookies are easy to make but let me share a few tricks that I always do to  have perfect cookies. I use parchment paper on every cookie I prepare, it makes cookies bake more evenly and they don’t burn on the bottom. Another trick is using a cookie scoop, they look like a small ice cream scoop and it will make your cookies all a uniform size and look like a pro made them.  They come in different sizes and on this cookie I used a 1 1/2 tablespoon size and this is my favorite scoop. With this recipe you want to start by lining your cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350.  Next sift the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl or stand up mixer cream together the room temperature butter, eggs and both sugars. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture a little at a time until it is completely incorporated. Last is the star of the show, fold in the chocolate chips.

Using a cookie scoop dispense the cookie dough on the parchment lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated oven for 9-11 minutes depending on your oven. The cookie should be slightly brown around the edges,and cool on a wire rack.

Fluffy cookies are the best cookies and these chocolate chip cookies look amazing! I would need to double the batch for them to last longer than 5 minutes at my house.

I’m really keen to try these been looking at them for a few days. I live in new Zealand and hav’ent heard of cornstarch, would that be the same as what we call cornflour a soft white floury substance. Looking forward to hearing what you think before I go making them and maybe wasting ingredients. Love love love your recipes, keep posting you are a blessing.

Can I just half the amount all the sugar ingredients in this recipe? I can’t eat very sweet cookies but I can still eat some. And can I use coco sugar or Muscovado instead since one of my sons are part of the ASD and his doctor prefers that I use those kinds of sugar instead of the usual white or brown sugar?

I have been looking and looking for a thick, cakey, fluffy cookie recipe with nothing but disappointing results. This is the one folks! I NEVER leave comments, but just had to as these turned out as described and are incredibly delicious. I did add chopped pecans and walnuts, but they would have been great without I’m sure. Thank you for finally ending my quest 🙂

These sounds delish, Could I use white whole wheat flour instead of the all purpose flour? Or at least do 1/2 and 1/2?

These are my, “go to chocolate chip cookies”. After several days in the cookie tin, these cookies were still soft. I use 1/2 semi sweet chips & 1/2 bitter sweet chocolate chips. The bold flavor cuts the sweetness.

The cornstarch is the magic ingredient.

I made these today. Wet ingredients weren’t exactly creamy but still usable. Alot of dry ingredients. Dough was hard to incorporate but I got it. They smell wonderful. Look nice.

Do you put the cookie dough balls in the fridge for a few hours before baking? Its just i came across some recipes that claims cooling the dough in the fridge prevents it from spreading and helps to thicken the cookies?

I made these last night and used SALTED butter and added a cup of Dark Chocolate Chips along with the Semi Sweet. BEST textured Chocolate Chip cookie I have ever made or eaten. My husband ate one from the first sheet and just kept eating. He said they were better than the two fancy cookie stores in town. I agree. THANK YOU for sharing!

This is the ONLY chocolate chip cookie recipe I have ever gone back to. 4 times now. Delicious, fluffy and amazing. We like fewer chocolate chips but that’s absolutely personal preference and totally adjustable. I don’t think the chips are what make this recipe anyway. It’s the magic or something.
