    Probably first and foremost because it’s naturally gluten-free. Both cornstarch and flour are considered “cereal starches”–but the main difference is the aforementioned gluten.

This interference makes the baked goods softer texture and less chewy. Going off of what HolyPaladine said: I agree, it adds to their tenderness, rather than crisp cookies.

    What happens to the starch when baking cookies?

    When heated though, the starch will actually swell and absorb even more water.

Once the starch has swelled and gelatinized this process cannot be reversed.

    Why do you substitute cornstarch for wheat flour in cookies?

    Yes, the substitution of cornstarch for a portion of the flour is a typical way to “soften” or “lighten” the crumb/texture of all baked goods, ranging from cookies to cake. The gluten in wheat flour leads to a more textured, resilient, and sturdy dough in general, so when you remove some of it, the texture of the end-product gets more delicate.
