Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (177 degrees C) with rack in center of oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

In bowl of electric mixer, with the paddle attachment, cream the butter. Add the white and brown sugars and beat until fluffy (about 2 minutes). Beat in eggs, one at a time, making sure to beat well after each addition. Add the vanilla and beat until incorporated.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and beat until incorporated, adding the chocolate chips about half way through mixing. If you find the dough very soft, cover and refrigerate until firm (about 30 minutes).

For large cookies, use a 2 tablespoon ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop about 2 tablespoons of dough (38 grams) onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake about 12 - 14 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Cool completely on wire rack.

Note: You can freeze this dough. Form the dough into balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze and then place the balls of dough in a plastic bag, seal, and freeze. When baking, simply place the frozen balls of dough on a baking sheet and bake as directed - may have to increase baking time a few minutes.
