Just another Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know what you are thinking, not another Chocolate Chip cookie!  But yes, it is another Chocolate Chip cookie.  This one owes something to both Kris at nom! nom! nom! blog and Alton Brown.  I also made a Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip version.  These are going to work with David tomorrow for his lucky co-workers.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks butter, melted

1 1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 Tbsp milk

1 tsp cornstarch

2 1/4 cups white flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups chocolate chips

1 cup walnuts

Pre-heat the oven to 350*F.  Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat together the butter and sugars.  Dissolve the cornstarch in the milk and add to the butter mixture with the vanilla, beat well.  Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt then beat in to the butter mixture.  Stir in the chips and nuts.  Best if chilled for a few hours but if you are in a hurry they will just spread a bit more in the oven.  Drop by rounded tablespoon on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Bake for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.  Cool on pan for 5 minutes and then move to cooling rack until cool.  Make 2 1/2 dozen.
