Not very often do you can meet a chocolate chip cookie that you don’t like. It is so amazing to me at how many different chocolate chip cookies there can be!

This cookie has a couple of ingredients in them that I haven’t used before in chocolate chip cookies. Maple syrup and cornstarch are incorporated in these cookies. Maple syrup adds a surprising sweetness, flavor, and helps keep the cookies soft. Cornstarch softens the harsh proteins in flour creating a more tender cookie.
