We're taking the humble chocolate chip cookie and turning them into Vanilla Bean Chocolate Chip Cookies! That's right, we're getting fancy here.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and line two baking trays with baking paper.
Slice the vanilla beans down the middle and using the back of the knife, scrape out the vanilla seeds on each side.
Cream the butter, brown sugar, sugar, vanilla bean seeds and vanilla bean paste together.
Add in the eggs and beat until smooth.
Beat in the cornflour, flour and baking soda and mix until all combined into a soft dough.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Roll into balls and place on the tray leaving at least 1 and 1/2" between each cookie to allow for spreading.
Bake for 10 minutes. They will look under done but the harden as they cool.
