1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon course (Kosher or Sea) salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
18 ounces (about 1 1/2 bags) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preaheat oven to 360 degrees. Mix butter, white and brown sugars until creamy and smooth. (I use speed 3 on my mixer for 3 minutes) Add eggs and vanilla, stir.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, stir with a fork to combine dry ingredients well. Add to sugar mixture. Stir well until combined. Add chocolate chips. I use a small scoop works out to be like one heaping tablespoon of dough and place about 2 inches apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. I use the large ones and bake 2 dozen at a time. Bake at 360 degrees for about 12 minutes. I set the timer for 10 and check them to make sure they aren’t browning too fast. Happy Holidays!!
