  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • In a separate bowl combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture.
  • Stir until combined and gently stir in white chocolate chips.
  • Form into balls about an inch or slightly more in diameter.
  • Chill for at least 2 hrs or a couple days if you don't want to eat them right away.
  • Preheat oven to 350 and grease cookie sheet. Bake for 8-11 minutes until edges are lightly brown. Do not over-bake. The centers may still look doughy.
