  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups 12 oz all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. smallish-medium coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or a blend of milk chocolate and semi-sweet; I highly recommend you TRY THIS. you won't regret it!


  • Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until it is nice and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes on medium-high speed). Add both eggs and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated. Finally add the chocolate chips until well distributed. The cookie batter should be somewhat thick.
  • Drop about 2 tablespoons of the cookie dough or use a medium cookie scoop and place the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown. Remove from the heat and allow the cookies to stay on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
