Ingredients

  • 1 cup (227g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (220g) packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (360g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (340g) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Cream Butter and Sugars: In a large mixing bowl, beat together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Fold in Chocolate Chips: Using a spatula or wooden spoon, fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  7. Portion Cookies: Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to drop rounded balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are set but still soft.
  9. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Enjoy: Once cooled, enjoy your delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies with a glass of milk or as desired.

Tips:

  • For extra chewy cookies, underbake them slightly and let them cool on the baking sheet.
  • For a different flavor, try adding nuts or using a mix of chocolate chips and chunks.
