Chocolate Chip Cookies




total time


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 heaping teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 cups packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Step 1

Arrange a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Place the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.

Step 3

Place the butter and sugar In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (Alternatively, use an electric hand mixer and large bowl.) Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the eggs and beat until blended. Add the vanilla and beat until blended.

Step 4

Turn the mixer off and add the flour mixture. Mix on medium speed just until the flour is mixed in, then turn the mixer to high speed for a few seconds to pull the dough together; it will be chunky. Add the chocolate chips and beat on high speed to thoroughly and quickly mix in the chips, about 5 seconds.

Step 5

Drop the dough by large spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet; don’t flatten them. Bake until lightly browned on top, 10 to 11 minutes. Cool on the pan on a rack for 1 minute, then transfer the cookies to the rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining dough.
