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


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract, incorporating it well into the mixture.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the dough, as it can result in tough cookies.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the dough
  7. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop the dough onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. The dough will spread as it bakes, resulting in soft and chewy cookies.
  8. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  9. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Serve the cookies warm or at room temperature with a glass of cold milk.
