Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love baking (as you probably know by now) and I love coming up with ridiculous concoctions. But sometimes, we all just need a bit of comfort food and soft chocolate chip cookies are just that!

These cookies are fabulous. I used some homemade vanilla sugar that made deliciously sweet. I always have a jar of vanilla sugar set aside. It is super easy to make. You simply put a vanilla bean or two split in half into large jar or container of sugar. Leave it be for a day or two, then it is ready to be used! It is also wonderful in coffee.

What I love most about these cookies is how soft they are. Cornstarch is the secret ingredient in this recipe. It keeps the cookies soft for days. I used these cookies to make ice cream sandwiches (recipe on the blog tomorrow) and even after being frozen they remained soft when they became room temperature!
