Ohhhhh deliciousness. There is nothing on this earth quite so perfectly satisfying as the perfect, buttery chocolate chip cookie. But nothing.


I like the "at least brush my hair and put on real pants" comment. Cuz in the winter, all anyone ever sees is your legs and your head, am I right or what?!

Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

These do look completely perfect! I love Anna Olson, so I'm not surprised to hear that the book is fantastic. Must give these a try - I'm no chocolate chip cookie connoisseur either, but I do love giving different recipes a try. PS. You've totally reminded me that I need to buy a kitchen scale!


I've been searching for a perfect choc chip cookie recipe for years but haven't found it yet, I think I'm going to try these today after work, they look amazing!


This is my absolute favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe - it's perfection! The addition of cornstarch is genius.


Is cornstarch used to make a softer center? I think cornstarch+ all purpose = cake flour (I may be wrong). Never seen cake flour in a cookie recipe before. Curious!

Becs @ Lay the table

Ha with the hair brushing comment. That is me every Sunday! I do not want to leave the house therefore I will not put on any makeup! Definitely going to give these cookies a try :)


Addie: In the book she notes that the cornstarch helps keep the middles of the cookies soft. It's about the same ratio of cornstarch to flour as cake flour (which is around 2 TBSP cornstarch for each cup of flour).

I've used recipes that suggest using bread flour for chewier cookies, but never cake flour. I have to say that it works like a charm!

Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking

Oh my gosh, you baing nerd! I don't even have a kitchen scale. I always just eyeball it, which is probably not a good baking habit. These look so chewy and soft. I love any kind of chococlate chip cookie truth be told. Each version has it's good points.


Awesome, I'll remember this :)

Mara @ Elemental Custard

Those bars look FANTASTIC. And im not really a chocolate chip cookie fan but they do look really good.. Hmm...


This is Dad. Chocolate Chip Cookie Victory! Finally!


Love that you took the time to weigh each cookie before baking! These look amazing and I'm sure your Dad would love to have had a batch!


I absolutely love your pictures. I simply adore chocolate chip cookies.


Those look fantastic. I love Anna's recipes. I admire anyone who can make such great cookies, as I can never get mine as soft and chewy as I desire.


Oh my goodness! Thank you so much! These cookies turned out perfectly and disappeared at my friends party in seconds :)


Hey! just wanted to know how much did each cookie weight, they look delicious so i wanted to make them today. Also, didn't you put the dough in the refrigerator like 2 hours before baking? Anna says so in the show. Keep up with the good work :)
