Chocolate Chip Cookies

As part of my baking extravaganza last weekend I made these chocolate chip cookies, they went down really well :). Thank you goes to the Curvy Carrot for this recipe.

2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 bag (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 180c/350f degrees.
2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.
4. In the bowl beat the butter and sugars together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
5. Add the salt, vanilla, and eggs, mixing well until thoroughly combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
6. With your whisk on a low speed, add the flour mixture, mixing until combined.
7. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
8. Using a cookie dough scoop or tablespoon, drop the cookie dough in mounds (about a tablespoon’s worth or so) onto the baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
9.  Bake the cookies, rotating and switching the pans halfway through the baking time (if baking two sheets at a time), until the edges are light brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.
10. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let cool.
