  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.

Gently fold in the crushed cornflakes and chocolate chips, if using.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden and the centers are set.
