  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Cream the Butter and Sugars: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until it's light and fluffy. This step usually takes about 2-3 minutes, and using an electric mixer can make it easier.

  3. Add Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Then, mix in the pure vanilla extract.

  4. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to your wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; you want the dough to be cohesive but not tough.

  5. Fold in Chocolate Chips: Gently fold in those irresistible chocolate chips.

  6. Scoop and Bake: Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto your prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart to allow room for spreading.

  7. Bake to Perfection: Bake in your preheated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown, and the centers are still soft. Remember, they'll continue to cook a bit as they cool on the baking sheet, so don't overbake.
