I found the recipe on Apple A Day blog. She wrote that it is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe because of a secret ingredient. I was intrigued.

I made a few changes to the recipe. I doubled the recipe because I live with two cookie monsters and there wouldn't be enough to share otherwise. I chilled the dough for about an hour only because of time issues, but it turned out to be a good thing so I will always chill the dough for at least an hour. Also I had to bake my cookies for 12 minutes. The original recipe stated not to cook the cookie more than 10 minutes, but it was still too doughy for our taste after 10 minutes. Twelve minutes was just perfect.
Here is my doubled version of the recipe.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
4 tsp. vanilla
4 cups all purpose flour
4 tspns. corn starch
2 tspns. baking soda
1 tspn. salt
2 cups chocolate chips
Whip the butter with the sugars until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, corn starch, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together. Blend flour mixture into the butter mixture, just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Chill the dough for at least an hour.
Preheat the oven to 350*. Drop the cookies by rounded tablespoon onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 minutes, rotating the cookie sheet at the half way mark. Let the cookies cool for five minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a cooling rack.
A Moment to Remember
For as long as I can remember when ever I tell Nugget our plans for the day, I don't know why, but I always end with, "does that sound like a plan". I had such a giggle when I told Nugget that after his nap we would make some cookies. I said, 'How does that sound?'
Nugget replied, 'Sound plan.' I laughed so I had tears in my eyes. He amazes me every day.
