Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ingredients
  • 2 sticks of butter , room temperature
  • 3/4 cups of brown sugar
  • 3/4 cups of granulated white sugar
  • 2 eggs , room temperature
  • 1 tsp . vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp . salt
  • 1/2 tsp . baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp . baking powder
  • 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt- stir to combine. (If you have a fine mesh strainer or sifter, sift the ingredients together to remove any lumps). Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using an electric mixer) cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth.
  4. With the mixer still on, add the eggs (one at a time) and vanilla until mixed in.
  5. Turn the mixer to a low setting and add the dry ingredient mixture (little by little) until mixture comes together.
  6. Gently mix in the chocolate chips separately using a wooden spoon until completely mixed in.
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add rounded balls of the cookie dough mixture to the baking sheets (I use a small ice cream scoop so the dough balls are all even)
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown
Recipe Notes

Feel free to play around with the cooking time. I recommend starting with 8-9 minutes and adding time if needed. Just remember, the cookies will continue to cook slightly after they have been removed from the oven.
