In bowl and using wooden spoon, cream together butter, sugar, vanilla and salt until light. In separate bowl, whisk flour with cornstarch; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Fold in chocolate.

Bake in 300°F (150°C) oven until lightly browned, about 45 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes. Using sharp knife and leaving in pan, cut through score lines. Let cool completely.
