My Most Favoritist Chocolate Chip Cookies!!

I know everyone has their favorite go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies.  So I want to share mine. =)  I am a big (huge) fan of soft cookies.  I really don't like them crunchy at all....unless i have a tall glass of milk handy to dip them in.  for awhile I had such a hard time with my chocolate chip cookies.  They kept spreading on me, would end up crunchy, but if i tried to shorten the cook time the were under don't ge tme wrong, i love cookie dough (I usually eat half the cookie dough before cooking it) but when it is slightly cooked and gooey.....not a fan.  So a few years ago I discovered this recipe and it is now the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I use. But then a few weeks ago, I came across a tip to make cookies even fluffier.  I decided to give it a whirl.  I thought the extra ingredient was a bit strange, but now it will be a new addition to my already awesome recipe.  =)

Knock Your Socks off Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c. butter (do not sub for margarine.....that will make them spread)
1 c. white sugar
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp. vanilla (yes, that is a tablespoon)
3 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp. cornstarch (weird, I know, but it works!  but if you don't want it, you can leave it out)
chocolate chips (however many you like, I usually use about 3/4 c- 1 c)

Preheat you oven to 350.

Cream butter, sugars, and vanilla.  Mix in eggs.  Add in salt, soda, starch and flour.  Add in chocolate chips.  The dough may be a bit crumbly.  Don't be alarmed and add milk or anything.  Wash your hands, and squish it together and it forms up nice.  The form the dough into 1 in balls.  Place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  Cook for 8-10 minutes.  Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool.

These cookies don't brown up....if they've cooked them way too long!  Also, they don't spread a whole lot either so they stay nice and fluffy.  I seriously love these cookies!

I have to stop myself or I will eat the whole batch.....but If I'm in a good enough mood I might share with a cute kid.
