Servings 24 cookies


  • 1 c salted butter softened
  • 1 ¼ c brown sugar
  • ½ c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ c semi-sweet chocolate chips + additional for topping or chunks


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter, brown sugar and sugar. Mix on low until combined then on high until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well-combined, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula halfway through mixing.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until incorporated.
  • Add the chocolate chips and stir just until well-dispersed throughout.
  • **Optional** Cover the dough and refrigerate for up to 36 hours.
  • Use a cookie scoop to evenly scoop the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets. You should have 24 cookies. Do NOT press the cookies down to flatten them at all.
  • Bake one sheet at a time for 10-12 minutes or until a light golden brown around the edges (the center might still look a bit doughy). Do NOT overbake!
  • Press a few additional chocolate chips onto the cookies while they're still hot!
  • Let them cool completely on the pan. (The heat from the pan will continue to bake the cookies)
  • Repeat until the pans of cookies have all been baked and enjoy!
