  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups real unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 oz Ghiradelli milk chocolate chips or other quality chocolate chips, 11.5 .


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine and set aside.
  • Using paddle attachment on mixer, cream butter and sugars together just until blended.
  • Add eggs, one a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Add the vanilla.
  • Put mixer on low speed, and add in dry ingredients.
  • Mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  • Stir in chocolate chips by hand gently.
  • It's best to make bigger cookies for the right texture - so I would recommend using a 4 Tablespoon size scoop to form your cookies.
  • Place on cookie sheet and bake for 15-17 minutes. I like mine to look a little undercooked in the middle, then let them finish cooking on the cookie sheet for a few minutes while they cool. Then move them to a cookie rack or plate to keep cooling.
  • If you are freezing these cookies: Form into balls, and freeze on a cookie sheet. After frozen remove and add to a Ziploc freezer bag. They will last for about a month in the freezer. To bake just take out and bake as directed, adding a few extra minutes of baking time.
