together in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer for 5 minutes or until they're fluffy.

until it is all incorporated but don't overmix. Pour in the
Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
All-Purpose Flour (2 cups)
Baking Soda (1 tsp)
Kosher Salt (1/2 tsp)
Corn Starch (1 tsp)
in a bowl and then add about 1/2 cup at a time to the mixer while it's stirring until it's all combined. Take care not to over mix this as well since it will become tough if you do.
Stir in the
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (1 1/2 cups)
and anything else in your pantry that looks good at the moment such as chopped nuts, toffee bits, chocolate chunks, oats, peanut butter chips, or shredded coconut.
