    Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or a handheld electric mixer on medium speed cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Reduce the speed to low. Add the vanilla and the eggs one at a time mixing just until incorporated.

    Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop drop the cookie dough on to the prepared baking sheet leaving about 2 inches between the scoops. If desired press a few add ins into the tops of the cookies.
