Equipment

  • 2 baking sheets
  • parchment paper
  • stand mixer or handheld mixer

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter (one stick), cut into small pieces
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, corn starch, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Mix on low speed until well combined. Some of the butter may remain in small pieces.
  • Slowly add in the flour mixture and continue to mix until just combined. Do not overmix. This is a very dry dough. Resist the urge to add liquid.
  • Add the chocolate chips and walnuts. Mix to incorporate.
  • Form into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Spread apart as they will expand while baking.
  • Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 6-7 minutes until golden brown.

Notes

The walnuts are optional but, trust me, you want to add them. They add texture to the cookies.
I used dark brown sugar but light brown would also work. It just won't have that rich flavor that dark brown sugar gives.
