Honey Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped toasted salted nuts
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook and whisk for 2-3 minutes, or until butter foams and starts to brown. Pour butter into a large mixing bowl.
Add brown sugar, honey and vanilla to bowl. Mix on medium speed for 1 minute, or until well combined. Mix in egg until well combined - about 2 minutes. Sift in baking powder, baking soda, salt and cornstarch, and mix until just combined. Sift in flour and mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts until just combined. Chill cookie dough in refrigerator for 45 minutes, or until cold.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place heaping tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheets, spacing about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to wire racks.
