1. Gather the Ingredients: To
begin your chocolate chip cookie adventure, you will need the following
ingredients:

-1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted
butter, softened

-1 cup of granulated sugar

-1 cup of packed brown sugar

-2 large eggs

-1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

-3 cups of all-purpose flour

-1 teaspoon of baking soda -1/2
teaspoon of salt

-2 cups of chocolate chips (you
can choose milk, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate chips, or a combination)

2. Cream the Butter and Sugars:
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butte granulated sugar, and
brown sugar until light and fluffy. You can use a hand mixer or stand mixer for
this step. The mixture should become pale in color, and the texture should be
creamy.

3. Add the Eggs and Vanilla
Extract:
Once the butter and sugars are creamed, add the eggs one at a time,
beating well after each creamed, add the eggs one at a time, beating well after
each addition. Then, mix in the vanilla extract until well incorporated. This
step will provide moisture and flavor to your cookies.

4. Combine the Dry Ingredients:
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually
add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be
careful not to over mix, as this can result in tough cookies.

5. Fold in the Chocolate Chips:
Gently fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the
dough. You can use a spatula or wooden spoon for this step. Feel free to add
more or fewer chocolate chips according to your preference.

6. Chill the Dough: Cover the dough
in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours.
Chilling the dough helps prevent the cookies from spreading too much while
baking and allows the flavors to meld together.

7. Bake the Cookies: Preheat
your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone
baking mats. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded portions of dough
onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving space between each cookie to allow for
spreading. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the
centers are slightly soft. The cookies may appear slightly under cooked, but
they will firm up as they cool.

8. Cool and Enjoy: Once baked,
remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for a
few minutes. Transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely, allowing the
cookies to set and the to develop. Serve with a cold glass of milk or enjoy
them as is for a delicious treat.

9. Storage: If you have any leftover
cookies, store them in an airtight container at room temperature. They will
stay fresh for 3-5 days. You can also freeze the cookie dough and bake them
straight from frozen whenever a cookie craving strikes.
