  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 3 ¼ cups flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 2 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to beat together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar on high until light and fluffy - about one minute. Scrape the sides.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and beat again. Scrape the sides.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix on medium until well combined. Add chocolate chips and mix on low just until combined.
  • Use a 2.5 Tbsp. size scoop to make balls of dough. Put six balls of dough on each sheet and bake 10-12 minutes until cookies are just set on top and almost starting to brown on the edges around the bottom.
