Ingredients

  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons) softened
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl (or the bowl of a stand mixer), cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • Add the flour mixture and beat at medium speed just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.Note: the dough will be very firm and a bit crumbly but should form a ball when pressed together.
  • Split the dough into six equal portions and shape each into a ball. Tip: use a round ½ cup measuring cup to make it easier to shape each cookie dough ball.
  • Place the dough balls on a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the cookie sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Remove the plastic wrap from the cookie sheet. Bake the cookies at 400F for 15-18 minutes until set and golden brown around the edges.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.The cookies can be served warm or at room temperature.
