The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nothing says I love you like homemade cookies. Warm out of the oven. The smell permeates the house and soothes the soul.

Everyone believes that they have found the best recipe for chocolate chip cookies. But I have. Really. No joke. These are the best. Try them once, and you will see.

These cookies are just lovely. They are soft. They melt in your mouth. That’s all I can really say. These cookies leave me speechless.

So, I am asking you just this once to put aside any recipes you might have and try this one. One big bowl and a few basic ingredients is all you need. Try and let me know what you think.

THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIESRecipe by Anna Olson from Food Network Canada

Makes about 2 dozen cookies

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz semi sweet chocolate chips, chunks, or candy coated chocolates (like M&M’s)

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cream together butter and sugars until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.

Stir in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips or chunks.

Drop by tablespoons onto a silpat lined baking sheet (or greased baking sheet) and bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown around the edges.

Transfer to wire racks and let cool slightly. Enjoy!
