DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Grease cookie sheet (I don't do that, I just use parchment paper).
  • Cream butter until light and fluffy.
  • Slowly add sugars, continuing to cream until smooth and light.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time, and then beat in vanilla.
  • In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, cornstarch and salt.
  • Add to creamed mixture and slowly beat until flour just disappears.
  • Stir in chips (you can also add 3/4 cup nuts at this stage if you like).
  • Drop by generous tablespoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, on prepared sheets and bake 10 to 15 min, just until edges are golden.
  • Cool on sheet 1 min, then transfer to racks to cool.
  • The dough can be chilled for about 1/2 hour, then shaped into a log, wrapped in plastic, and stored in refrigerator (or frozen), Cut into 1/2 inch slices and bake as per above. Depending how cold or frozen they are, they might keep the "sliced" shape, for a more natural look, I usually slice them all, then give them a quick roll in my palms and squish to flatten, then use the tips of my fingers to make some indents so it doesn't look so perfect.
