These are a great cookie. Easy to make I just use a few less chocolate chips.

Great recipe. Cookies come out perfect every time. Use a heaping half tbsp. if you like slightly salty cookies
excellent! tastes like store bought cookies.
The best ever!! Made them exactly by the directions, they turned out fantastic! My cookies were always too hard so I stopped making them. I also was taken by the cornstarch as one of the ingredients- had to try them so glad I did. Thank you so much for submitting them Great Job! My hubby is so happy and so am I.

omg the texture of the dough was divine i didn't follow the direction because i like it a little bit chuncky and not flatted but it turn out very good sad it makes only 24 meduim cookies plus on mega cooky for my man
I really love the texture of the batter. Cookies are soft and chewy. I made mines slighly larger and got 19. Cooked for 13 minutes because of size.

Best chocolate chip cookies ever. Really good. I think the cornstarch really made the difference.

These cookies turned out great! The cornstarch makes them soft and not crunchy. I took them to an event tonight and they all got eaten. They taste wonderful. I will definitely be making these again. The only bad thing is the recipe only makes 24 cookies. Next time I will double the recipe.

Amazing!!!! The whole family is in heaven!

These were great! Cornstarch helped give the cookies a nice crunch but not hard or burnt. Definitely making again.

Perfect! Exactly the soft, slightly chewy cookie I’ve been searching for!

I make these for potlucks at work and there are no leftovers! Looooove these. I use Earth Balance non-dairy butter and it still comes out fantastic. 5/5

Gwyneth 10 Jul 2017

David 6 Jul 2017

Great taste and softness
Mr Sir Jake 20 Feb 2017
Amazing, 10 minutes in the oven and they are perfect. I did add just a little more butter to achieve that perfect cookie dough texture.
Latrisha H. 16 Jan 2017
Amazing!!! The ONLY thing I changed was I used margarine instead of the butter because I was out but these are awesome!!! Definitely my new go to cookie recipe!

First time scratch baking and love these cookies taste just like they would from a store but richer. Haven't tested their complete softness yet, will check in a few days and see if they stay as soft as they did coming out the oven. 1 problem is the directions didnt tell you to refrigerate which makes the dough a bit "tougher". The scoops originally didnt look like the ones pictured. The first few looked very chocolatey or swirly before deciding to refrigerate. Overall, still tasty whether you do refrigerate or not.

The best cookies I've ever baked. Was trying other recepies but this turned out to be my and families favourite. Although I like white chocolate equally well as the dark one ;) I've added a bit of ot and these turned out to be a bit sweeter than the original but if U'll make them small, they are perfect too :) Happy baking!!!
Julia L. 9 Oct 2016
I really like this recipe. The cookies are soft and moist. I would make a slight change in the cooking time. Probably add another minute because at 10 mins it's a little too soft for my taste. However, the cookies turned out great and I will make this again for the family.

My all time favorite cookie recipe. It's the corn starch, not many recipes have it and it makes them so soft and delicious. The best chocolate chip cookie ever.

I thought this was a really good cookie. I did however add a package of vanilla pudding for extra softness. They were a HIT!!!!
