Okay, now back to bed. Hopefully.
Impeccable, "One-Bowl" Chocolate Chip Cookies
yields 2 dozen or so
modified from Anna Olson
3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, room temp.
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons corn starch
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon milk
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips/M&Ms
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter and sugars with blender until well incorporated.
2. Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
3. Add flour, corn starch, baking soda, salt, mixing minimally with mixer to combine, then scraping the sides and bottom of bowl with spatula to stir in remaining dry bits, adding milk with a few stirs, and then chocolate chips at the end.
4. Bake on parchment paper-lined cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes (8 in my oven), or until the edges are barely, almost indistinguishably light brown (this is key! they won't look done!). Remove and let cool on sheet for 5 minutes, then on rack completely. Enjoy!
