2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate large bowl, cream the softened butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract, and beat until well combined.
Gradually stir in the flour mixture until a dough forms.
Fold in the chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are set.
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.
Enjoy your delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies!
For chewy cookies, slightly underbake them and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.
For crispy cookies, bake them for a slightly longer time until they are golden brown all over.
You can also add chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or other mix-ins to the dough for extra flavor and texture.
