- 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 bag (12 ounces) chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition until combined; mix in vanilla.
With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture; mix until just incorporated. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir in chocolate chips.
Drop 1/4-cup mounds of dough onto ungreased baking sheets, at least 4 inches apart and away from edges of pan. (You will fit about 4 cookies to a sheet; bake in 2 batches, using 2 baking sheets per batch.) Bake until golden, 15 to 18 minutes, rotating sheets front to back and from top to bottom of oven halfway through.
Cool 1 to 2 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
