Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a recipe I’ve had and have been making for years. I do it by memory.

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
by Rebbekkah Fisher

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce the speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add the flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop tablespoon-size balls of dough on a baking sheet, about 2 inches apart . Bake until the cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week. Makes 3 dozen.
