Print Recipe


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • cups brown sugar lightly packed
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and eggs. Add in salt and baking powder and 1 cup of flour. Stir on low to combine. Add the additional two cups of flour and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Divide the dough into 3-tablespoon sized balls using a large cookie scoop and lay out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and put in the fridge.
  • TO FREEZE THE DOUGH: Once the cookie dough balls are firm, you can put them in a freezer-safe storage bag and freeze. Place on the counter 10-20 minutes before baking to take the chill off.
  • WHEN IT'S TIME TO BAKE: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Let dough sit at room temperature while the oven preheats and drop onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.


  • Store baked cookies in a cookie jar for up to five days. Pop in the microwave or oven for a quick zap to get that fresh from the oven flavor.
