Closing Gift Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 2 1/2 sticks butter softened, but still cool to the touch
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs room temp, if you care.
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 bag chocolate chips I always use Ghirardelli because #diva.


  • Mix the butter, sugars, baking soda and powder, and salt all together until creamy. 2-3 mins.
  • Beat in vanilla.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time, and scrape down the sides a few times.
  • Add in flour, one cup at a time. Easy does it.
  • Dump in your chocolate chips and mix lightly.
  • Using an ice scoop, add only 9 cookies to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. These things really spread out, so leave room!
  • Flatten cookies slightly and bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Pull out and bang the pan a few times on a cold surface, like your countertop. Bake for another 3 minutes and do the same thing. Put the cookies back in for another 1-2 minutes, or until they start to brown.
