Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a larger bowl, beat the butter, shortening, and both sugars together with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the egg and egg yolk, followed by the vanilla and corn syrup.
  • In a medium bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a whisk to combine. Add all the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat on low speed just until almost fully combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven 350ºF. Set the cookie dough on the counter to soften slightly for 10 minutes. Roll the dough into 1 tablespoon sized balls and place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. 
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown around the edges and just underdone in the center. Cool cookies on the pan for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack.

Make ahead tip

  • Cookie dough can be kept covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Bring to room temperature and continue with step 3. 
  • Baked cookies will keep for up to 1 week stored in an airtight container at room temperature. They can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
