From Kelsey's Apple A Day 

 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk chocolate chunks (or you can use milk chocolate chips or semisweet chips)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.

3. Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chunks.

4. Using a standard-sized cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes until barely golden brown around the edges. (The tops will not brown, but do not cook longer than 10 minutes.)

5. Let cool on the sheet on a wire rack for five minutes.  Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely.
