  • 1 cup butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat oven to 375° and set 2 cookie sheets aside.
  • Place butter in a small bowl and melt butter in the microwave, then let it cool completely.
  • In a large bowl combine flour, cornstarch and powdered sugar.
  • Add the vanilla to the butter and then add in the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Add chocolate chips and stir.
  • Using a small cookie scoop (1 tablespoon) scoop dough balls onto the baking sheet. (If you don't have a scoop, you can roll them in 1" balls.
  • Use a spoon or cup and very lightly and gently press down on your cookie dough balls.
  • Bake for 11-12 minutes, edges should be lightly browned.
  • Cool on wire racks and enjoy.
  • Makes 25-30 small cookies.


Make sure your flour, powdered sugar and cornstarch is not over measured or the cookie texture will change and you'll have hard cookies. It's better to be a little under than over and then add in, instead of the other way around.
Make sure you butter is cooled completely, or the chocolate chips will melt into the dough. (You can place in fridge to speed it up)
