3/4cupwhite whole wheat flour or all purpose flour
1cupsemi-sweet or dark chocolate chips, plus more for studding the surface of the cookies before they bake (optional)
preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream the butter and sugars together for several minutes until fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to get everything evenly incorporated.
Add in the vanilla and egg, beat well. Scrape down the bowl again.
Whisk the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch together, then blend into the wet ingredients until there is no dry flour left.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop by medium sized scoops onto your prepared baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Gently flatten out the tops with an offset spatula. Just press down lightly. Press in a few extra chips into the surface of your cookies, if desired.
Bake for about 11 minutes. The cookies will appear slightly underdone. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool.
