Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies by Savory Sweet Life

These truly are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. They have crispy edges, soft insides and a touch of added flavor from the sea salt.

  • Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl, using a hand mixer), combine the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla and mix for an additional 2 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Turn the mixer to medium-low speed and gradually add the flour mixture. Beat until all of the flour mixture is combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Using 2 tablespoons of dough for each cookie (I like to use a cookie scoop for this), drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Divide between the two prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake the cookies for 15 minutes (check at about 12 minutes), one batch at a time, or until the edges are golden brown.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes. Slide the parchment paper, with the cookies on top, onto a wire rack. Cool completely. Serve.
