1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, baking soda, cornstarch, salt, and chocolate chips. (milk chocolate or dark chocolate!) Mix them together and set the bowl aside.

2. In a separate large bowl, combine the sourdough starter, melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir the ingredients together until they resemble a runny caramel consistency.

3. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Use a spatula to bring the dough together, ensuring all the ingredients are well incorporated. Once the dough is mixed, cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate it. For optimal results, refrigerate for 24 hours if possible.

4. When you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat your oven to 329°F and line two cookie baking tray with parchment paper.

5. Use a cookie scoop or a large spoon to portion out balls of dough. The recommended size for this recipe is 30 grams per dough ball. Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets.

6. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 12 to 13 minutes, or until they turn golden brown on top while still being slightly molten in the center.

7. Remove the cookies from the oven and carefully transfer them to a wire rack to cool. Keep in mind that the cookies will continue to bake for a few minutes outside of the oven and will firm up as they cool to room temperature.
