Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (Print Me)
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 360°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside. Using a hand or stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together on medium-high speed for 3 minutes, until nice and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla, and mix for 2 minutes. Reduce the mixer speed to medium-low and add the flour mixture. When the cookie dough has absorbed the dry ingredients, stir in the chocolate chips and mix until they are well distributed.
Drop 2 tablespoons of dough (or use a medium cookie scoop) onto the cookie sheet for each cookie, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown, remove from oven and allow the cookies to cool for 2 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
