  • 2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  7. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  8. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.
  10. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Be sure to measure your flour correctly by spooning it into the measuring cup and leveling it off with a knife.
  • Room temperature ingredients are key to achieving a smooth and even texture in your dough.
  • Don’t overmix the dough as it can cause the cookies to become tough and dry.
  • If you prefer a softer cookie, bake for a shorter amount of time. If you prefer a crispier cookie, bake for a longer amount of time.
