  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
  • Melt the butter a little bit in the microwave.
    Partially Melted Butter
  • Add the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla to a medium bowl, and use a fork or whisk to stir until smooth.
  • Add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt, and stir until well-combined.
  • Stir in 5 tablespoons chocolate chips.
  • Divide the dough into 2 equal balls and place them on the prepared baking tray.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon chocolate chips on top of the cookie dough balls.
  • Bake until the cookies are light golden, about 12 to 14 minutes. They should still look a touch doughy in the center when you take them out of the oven.

  • Let the cookies cool on the baking tray.
  • Serve.


  • Don't Over-Bake: Be careful not to over-bake the cookies because they’ll harden more as they cool. These cookies should look light golden on the outside, but should still look a touch doughy in the center when you take them out of the oven.
  • Cornstarch: The cornstarch is what makes these cookies soft and thick. You can omit the cornstarch for a more brittle cookie that’s crispy outside and chewy inside.
  • Storage: For best flavor and texture, store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
  • Recipe Yield and Serving Size: This recipe makes 2 large chocolate chip cookies. For the nutritional information, each serving is half a cookie for a total of 4 servings for the entire recipe.
