Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a recipe I got from my favourite pastry chef on Food Channel......Anna Olson (program Sugar). She certainly makes it look so easy to bake!
I made this just this afternoon. Had the urge to bake last night but did not have all the ingredients. It turned out FAB!

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 bittersweet chocolate, cut into chunks

Preheat oven to 350 F= 180 C
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 chunks.
Drop by tablespoons onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown around the edges.


1. To make chewy-centred cookies, the secret ingredient is cornstarch. If you like crispy cookies, omit cornstarch and replace baking soda with baking powder.

2. It's more convenient to use cup measurement than weighing.

1 cup butter = 8 oz of the stuff

1 cup all-purpose or plain flour, unsifted = 5 oz (140 g)

1 cup cake flour, sifted = 4 oz (140 g)

Buy measuring cups (1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/3) & spoons. Don't rely on normal cup bcoz your biscuits, cake or bread won't turn out as you 'd wished!

Happy baking!
