How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Beat together butter and sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer at high speed until pale and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Lightly beat 1 egg with a fork in a small bowl and add 1 3/4 tablespoons of it plus 2 remaining whole eggs to butter mixture, beating with mixer until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in vanilla. Reduce speed to low and mix in flour mixture until just blended, then stir in chips.
- Scoop 1/4 cup batter for each cookie (I use an ice cream scoop), arranging mounds 3 inches apart, on 2 baking sheets. Flatten mounds into 3-inch rounds using moistened bottom of glass. I sometimes also add a pinch of salt to the top to make the chocolate zing. Form remaining cookies on additional sheets of parchment.
