1.Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until it is nice and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes on medium-high speed on a K-5).
2.Add both eggs and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes.
3.Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated.
4.Finally add chocolate chips until well distributed. The cookie batter should be somewhat thick.
5.Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough or use a medium cookie scoop and plop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
6.Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown.
7.Remove from heat and allow the cookies to stay on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes.
8.Pick up the parchment paper with the cookies still on top and transfer to a cool non-porous surface.
9.Allow the cookies to cool on the paper for at least 3 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
*Please do not use table salt, the sea salt gives the cookies a nice flavor and hints of texture. If you only have table salt, use 1/2 tsp. *When using sea salt, you will get small crunchy flecks of salt when you bite into the cookie. If you do not like this taste, go with 1/2 teaspoon of table salt.
If you’re cookies are coming out flat and not like the pictures there are probably 3 reasons for this.
#1 Baking powder and Baking soda is old. If your baking powder and soda is older than 1 year and has not been in a sealed (preferably air tight) container, it has lost some of it rising qualities.
#2 Creaming. It is not enough to just cream the butter and sugars until it has come together. This recipe requires you to beat it with a mixer for 3 minutes until the texture of the butter and sugar turns to light and fluffy-just like the picture.
#3 Flour. Flour should be weighed. This can make or break the recipe because just scooping flour into a measuring cup will never yield ideal or consistent results.
