The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

Makes about 4 dozen cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. sea or table salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups/16 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar until very creamy (If using an electric mixer, beat 4 minutes on medium speed).

Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until very creamy, about 2 minutes. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Cookie batter should be somewhat thick. Finally, add chocolate chips and mix well. If you want, refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes to harden it a little and make it easier to work with.


Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough two inches apart onto a baking sheet lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, or lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.

Transfer cookies to a wire rack or a cool surface. Wait about 5 minutes before serving.
