Tasty Thursdays: Chocolate Chip Cookies

This weekend I whipped up some of the yummiest chocolate chip cookies.  I accidentally added 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract instead of the 2 teaspoons, whoops, but no worries the cookies were still delicious!
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups (12 oz) all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. smallish-medium coarse sea salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 1 1/2 bags)
DIRECTIONS:Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until it is nice and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes on medium-high speed on a K-5). Add both eggs and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes.  Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated.  Finally add chocolate chips until well distributed.  The cookie batter should be somewhat thick.  Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough or use a medium cookie scoop and plop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown.   For troubleshooting tips, check out the recipe at The Savory Sweet Life. Enjoy!
