This is the One

Several years and experiments later, I have found my favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe, courtesy of Ontario's own Anna Olson, host of the Food Network's "Sugar" and "Fresh".

They're chewy and delicious. Apparently it's the cornstarch that keeps them chewy inside. I use mini Callebaut 70% chocolate chips and am very careful not to overcook as that seems to be an easy thing to do.

Anna Olson's Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, cut into chunks (n0t me, see note above)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream together butter and sugars until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and blend in. Stir in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chunks. (BPG: I'd put the kettle on at this point). Drop by tablespoons onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, until just golden brown around the edges.
