Start by heating your oven to 350F and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then in a small bowl whisk your dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, salt). In your mixer with the paddle attachment, mix the butter with both the granulated and brown sugars until they are light and fluffy. After you have reached your desired fluffiness, reduce the speed and add in your vanilla and eggs. Continue to beat until well combined, about 1 minute.
To finish, mix in the flour mixture until just combined and then stir in the chocolate chips. To bake, drop a tablespoon ball two inches apart on your prepared baking sheets. Bake the cookies for about 8-10 minutes or until they are golden brown on the edges. Remove and allow to cool on the baking sheet for a minute or two before moving them to a wire rack. Store in an airtight container for up to a week (if they last that long)!
