Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, whisk together baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, flour, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Now, with a mixer, mix the butter and sugars together well. Eventually the mixture will become fluffy.
  3. Now, on low speed, begin adding the remaining ingredients slowly while continuing to mix. Add the chocolate chips last and mix them in shortly.
  4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 60 hours (2 1/2 days). Really, any time between 48 and 72 hours (2 and 3 days) will work well. Shoot for 60 hours.
  5. When it is time to bake preheat your oven to 350.
  6. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and place ping pong ball sized dough balls 2 1/2"-inches apart on your baking sheets. Suggested to lightly sprinkle salt on top before baking.
  7. Bake for 17 minutes. Once baking is complete, transfer to wire racks to cool for 12-15 minutes.
