Honestly, these cookies are so perfect that there is nothing much I can say about them.
I barely changed anything on the recipe, besides the change in chips that I thought would add a little pizzazz!
If you love soft, chewy cookies, this recipe is gold.
Soft & Chewy Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies
Thanks, Sally’s Baking Addiction
2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, measured correctly
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup light brown sugar, loosely packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
Toss together the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
In a medium size bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until no brown sugar lumps remain. Whisk in the egg, then the egg yolk. Finally, whisk in the vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula. The dough will be very soft, yet thick. Fold in the chips. Cover the dough and chill for at least 2 hours, or up to 3 days. Chilling is mandatory.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and allow to slightly soften at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 325F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
Roll the dough into balls, about 1.5 Tablespoons of dough each. Roll the cookie dough balls to be taller rather than wide, to ensure the cookies will bake up to be thick. Press a few more chocolate chips/chunks on top of the dough balls for looks, if desired. Bake the cookies for 11-12 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and underbaked. They will continue to bake on the cookie sheet. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
Cookies stay soft and fresh for 7 whole days at room temperature. Cookies may be frozen up to 3 months. Rolled cookie dough may be frozen up to three months and baked in their frozen state for 12 minutes.
