Chocolate Chip Cookies with an Almond Twist!

My boys are spoiled. I love tweaking and trying new things, and I love that they let me test all my concoctions out on them. haha Something new almost every night. Tonight’s new treat….. a twist on the plain chocolate chip cookie. Tonight I decided to add 1 tsp of Almond Extract to the mix, and WOW, was it ever GOOD! It gave it a bit more depth and flavor. No one knew what I had added….. they just knew that this cookie, tasted different. Better! hahaha  So, this one was a winner! If you give it a try, let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt
2 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
In your stand mixer  with the paddle attachment, combine: butter, cream cheese, sugars, egg, vanilla, and beat on level 4-5 speed until well-creamed, light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add: flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, and mix until you get it all combined.
Add chocolate chips, and mix lightly using the stand mixer OR fold in by hand using spatula.
Using a cookie spoon, make 2 inch balls on a well greased cookie sheet. Flatten with your hand and place in the fridge for an hour to get cold.
Preheat oven to 350F

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges have set….. but not longer than 10 minutes. Leave cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes after baking, where they will continue to bake. Then set on a cookie rack to finish cooling.
