Equipment

  • Baking sheet
  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring spoons
  • Kitchen scale or measuring cups
  • Whisk
  • Stand mixer with paddle attachment, wooden spoon, or hand mixer
  • Cookie scoop
  • Cooling rack
  • Parchment paper (optional)

Ingredients
 
 

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter room temperature
  • cup light brown sugar packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • cups chocolate chips and/or chunks
  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt optional, for topping

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper (optional, for easier cleanup).
  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping the bowl sides as needed. Add the egg and then the vanilla, mixing well after each addition.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop balls of dough at least 2 inches apart onto parchment lined baking sheets (optional: add mini chocolate chips to the tops of the dough balls). The recipe should make about 16 large cookies or 24 smaller cookies.
  • Bake at 350°F for 10-14 minutes or until the edges are lightly tan.
  • Sprinkle coarse salt on top of the cookies (optional). After a few minutes, transfer them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

Notes

If you want less chocolatey cookies, use about 1½ cups of chips (255g) instead.
Store in an airtight container with a slice of bread for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
To make ahead: make the dough, then form and freeze the dough balls. When you want to bake them, place them on a baking sheet while the oven preheats.
