Though we love nicely shaped cookies made with fancy cookie cutters, drop cookies always have a rustic charm that makes every bite irresistible. Make a batch of drop cookies on a week night and you'll surely have enough spirit to make it through till Friday.

To make cookie baking easier, use a silicone baking mat. This innovative kitchen tool allows you to make evenly-baked cookies without burnt edges.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (The Wright Recipes)

"TIP: Want to add a slightly fancy touch to these cookies? I happen to have some vanilla beans hanging around from catering gigs, and like to throw in the scrapings from 1 pod when creaming the butter and sugar together for the cookies (keep the extract in there, too). Instead of throwing the empty pods away, I have a tip for you to make their flavor go a bit further in the kitchen."

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 rounded tsp. coarse salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 sticks softened unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 packed cup light-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 lb. chopped bittersweet chocolate (or chips)
