Creaming the Butter and Sugar

To begin, we’ll need 4 tablespoons of softened butter, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed for about 1 minute. The key here is to achieve a creamy texture that incorporates air pockets into the batter. This will make the cookies light and fluffy as they bake.

Adding the Extra Touches

Once the butter and sugar are perfectly creamed, it’s time to add one large egg yolk and half a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix these ingredients in with the butter and sugar mixture until well combined.

In a separate small bowl, stir together half a cup of all-purpose flour, a quarter teaspoon of baking soda, an eighth of a teaspoon of salt, and a quarter teaspoon of corn starch. This secret ingredient is what makes these cookies extra soft and fluffy. Now, add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until the dough starts to form.

To take these cookies to the next level, fold in half a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Trust me, the gooey goodness of the melted chocolate will make every bite heavenly.

Baking the Cookies

Preheat your oven to 350┬░F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone baking sheet. Scoop the dough onto the baking sheet, spacing each cookie about 2 inches apart. Roll the dough into balls for that perfect cookie shape.

Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned. The center of the cookies should still look slightly underbaked. Remember, they will continue to bake as they cool, resulting in soft and chewy cookies.

Enjoying the Fruits of Your Labor

Once you take the cookies out of the oven, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes. This will ensure they set properly before transferring them to a cooling rack. Trust me, the aroma of fresh-baked cookies will tempt you, but the wait is definitely worth it!

So gather your friends, grab a glass of milk, and indulge in these mouth-watering small batch chocolate chip cookies. They are so deliciously addictive, you won’t be able to resist having another. Get ready to savor every bite and experience homemade cookie bliss!
