Rom, just sub in a 1/3 cup of flour instead of the cornstarch. My friend does this regularly and swears the cookies are just as good.

Rom, you will find cornstarch useful in many many areas. Its a wonderful thickener for sauces you would like to keep translucent. (Its also wonderful in place of baby powder on little kids!) And I think once you try brown sugar you will always have it. It has a richer flavour than white sugar. I have to admit, I use it almost exclusively. I even sub out the white sugar in many recipes and use brown. It keeps baked goods moister and chewier, and its better for brining meat than white. I hope you buy some and experiment with it. I bet you will be a fan!

Following this thread finally got to me and I don't even particularly like chocolate chip cookies! But I made a double batch this afternoon and they are so darn good. (My first time making from scratch cookies - I always buy yard-o-dough kind.) Thanks so much for for prompting me to do this - the kids are looking at me in awe!!!
