  • Total Time: 52 mins
  • Yield: 12-16 cookies 1x


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips/chocolate chunks


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Prepare a baking sheet with a light spray or a silpat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugars.
  3. Warm butter until just melted, about 30-40 seconds in the microwave.
  4. Cream butter and sugars together. Whisk in vanilla extract and egg. Whisk until lightly and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  5. In another mixing bowl, combine flour, corn starch, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.
  6. Slowly stir into the wet ingredients until combined, about 1 minute.
  7. Gently fold in chocolate chips and chocolate chunks until just combined.
  8. Place a heaping tablespoon sized dallop of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until dough is used up (There may be a little extra. You can freeze the dough or add them to formed cookie dough balls for larger cookies).
  9. Chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  10. Bake on a center rack for about 12 minutes, until bottoms are golden, and tops look light and fluffy.
  11. Rest for 5 minutes to let the cookies firm up. Can be frozen for up to a month.
