Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract, such as Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 3/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 12 Ounces package semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs in large bowl. Stir in the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and cream of tartar. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop with a #40 scoop (looks like a mini metal ice cream scoop) or a rounded measuring tablespoonful about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased insulated baking sheet. Bake until light brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cool slightly, then remove from baking sheet. Cool on wire rack.

Makes about 4 dozen crackly, chewy-crispy bakery-style cookies. They are wonderful!

Vanilla Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Vanilla Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
