Perfect Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies



  1. Cream butter and sugars in a stand mixer until light, fluffy and creamy, about 4-5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition.
  2. Add vanilla and mix.
  3. Sift together all dry ingredients and slowly add to the batter, mixing on low while doing so. When well combined, mix in chocolate chips.
  4. Put all cookie dough into fridge for at least 4 hours.
  5. Take out and roll lightly into 1-inch balls.
  6. Place on a cookie sheet lined with nonstick foil and bake at 325°F for 10-13 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven when the outside edges are starting to brown for a softer, chewier cookie. Leave in another minute or so if you like them just a tad bit crunchier.
