If baking immediately, preheat oven to 360 degrees. Whip softened butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar on high for approximately 2 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla extract, sea salt and continue to whip for an additional minute.
Add baking powder, baking soda, and flour. At this point I mix with a spoon, otherwise I end up covered in flour. Add chocolate chips and finish mixing.
Grease a cookie sheet. Spoon dough (golfball sizonto cookie sheet. I use a small ice cream scooper to scoop out the dough. It makes each cookie the same size and is easier than using a spoon.
If you want your cookie to have a nice rise while being a bit crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside, you need to place the cookie sheet with the dough balls on it in the refrigerator. You should refrigerate for about an hour. Bake cookies for 9-12 minutes. I pull them when they are VERY slightly brown on top. Allow to rest on baking sheet for an additional 2 minutes.
Enjoy with a tall glass of milk!
