- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
Beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed in a large bowl until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until light in color, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until well incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips by hand using a rubber spatula.
Using a small scoop or tablespoon, drop level tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. (You should be able to fit about a dozen cookies.) Bake until golden around the edges and soft-set in the centers, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, and then remove to a rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining dough, baking 3 batches total. Store the dough in the refrigerator between batches

When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
