- In another bowl combine flour, cornstarch and baking soda.

Perfect! Slightly soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. <br/><br/>Since I was a teen, I always made chocolate chip cookies using the Nestle Tollhouse recipe, and that worked fine in humid Florida. However, after moving to dry Arizona, they got too hard almost immediately out of the oven. This recipe worked great -- texture and taste-wise!<br/><br/>I looked for a recipe that doesn't require packaged pudding mix (too many artificial ingredients) or shortening. It's my new favorite cookie recipe!<br/><br/>I followed the recipe exactly, except omitted the white sugar.
Great recipe! I am weird about using less than 2 sticks of butter (don't ask why, I couldn't tell you!) so I just increased everything by a 1/3 of whatever was called for. So 2-2/3 c. flour, etc. For the egg I added an extra egg yolk. I also rolled them into balls and then flattened them slightly using the back of a spatula. They took 11 minutes to cook and then let them cool for a few on the sheet. They are soooo good! I love how they kept their shape! They have a little crunch on the outside and are soft and chewy inside! Perfecto! Thanks for the recipe!
