Prep Time 10 minutes
Bake Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 12 cookies (approx.)


  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 & 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature or cold * see notes
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks


  • Position a rack in the center of your oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine your powdered sugar, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk well to combine the ingredients and dissolve the brown sugar in the milk. Set aside.
  • In a separate large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to incorporate. Add unsalted butter to the dry mixture and cut the butter into the mix until you're left with small pieces of butter (no larger than a pea).
  • Pour your sugar / milk mix into your dry ingredient / butter mix. Stir until it comes together into a thick cookie dough. Add chocolate chips or chunks. Mix to incorporate.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, 2 spoons, or your hands, portion out the dough into approximately 12 balls. Drop the balls onto the parchment lined baking sheets leaving 1 to 2 inches of space between each cookie. Press each of the balls down into a disk shape. ** see notes
  • Bake the cookies in the center of a 350°F oven until golden brown on the edges and bottom (about 10 to 12 minutes). Cool the cookies for about 5 minutes on your baking sheets before transferring them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.



* For the butter, you can use room temperature or softened butter. You still get the same final product. The softened butter is a bit easier to cut into the dry ingredients, but other than that, there is no major difference. 
** This cookie dough does not spread out a lot, so just to get the right shape and thickness, it's important to flatten the cookie dough before baking. Your cookie dough disks should be about 1/2 an inch thick each. This will give your cookies enough room to spread, without spreading out too thin.
