Big Thick Chocolate Chunk and Chip Cookies

Many of my cookie recipes are light, crispy, and chewy on the inside. The other night I was craving a thick tender chocolate chip cookie. So I was inspired by images on Google to create the perfect thick chocolate chip cookie. My feeling was not to make a thick and heavy cookie…but dense, slightly chewy, and substantial. I have been adding organic non GMO cornstarch to my pastry lately. It works to give more structure, but not too dense. I think that’s the secret along with a very good quality fair trade bittersweet and semisweet chocolate combo of chunks and chips.

The cookie that I created was an, "OMG these are way too good", bites of perfection. They are exactly what I imagined, thick, slightly chewy on the inside, crispy on the outside and ooey gooey chocolate melty chunks all throughout. I got out a large freezer bag and put them straight away. Because, yes, you guessed it, sooo good that you need restraint from eating the whole batch. They make 18 large ones. I’d love to hear all about how they work when you make them.
