Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter (8 Tbsp.)
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg (chicken egg or duck egg), room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 cup Cake Flour
  • 1 tsp. corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 cup M&Ms, chocolate chips or chocolate chunks

Instructions

  • Cut the butter into squares and using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, cream the butter. Then add in the brown sugar and granulated sugar and cream again until just combined.
  • Then add in the egg and vanilla extract. Be careful not to over mix.
  • In a medium sized bowl, sift together the flours, baking soda, salt and corn starch. Then on low speed, slowly add in the flour mixture. You may need a rubber spatula to help get it all incorporated. Once mixed, turn off the mixer and fold in the M&Ms or chocolate chips of choice.
  • Chill the dough in the fridge, covered with foil, for 1 hour or overnight.
  • Once dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with non stick baking spray or place a Silpat baking mat on the baking sheet. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out the dough on to the sheet pan, no more than 6 cookies on one pan. (Recipe will make 8 large cookies)
  • Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned on the top. (Note* these cookies are best under baked! Remove them from the oven about 1 minute before you feel like they are done). Remove from oven and let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy!

Notes

To make the Easter edition, follow the same directions but swap the M&Ms with the Easter pastel color M&Ms.
