*makes about 2 dozen cookies depending on size

4 1/3 cups (540 g)         all purpose flour
2 tsp (12 g)                     salt
2 ½ tsp (12 g)                 baking soda
1 5/8 cups (370 g)         butter
1 ½ cup (310 g)              packed light brown sugar
1 cup (225 g)                  granulated sugar
2                                        eggs
½ tsp.                                vanilla extract
7 oz (200 g)                     chopped chocolate



Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the butter with both sugars until light and fluffy.

Combine eggs and vanilla extract. Slowly add to the butter mixture, scraping down after each addition.

Combine the flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the wet mixture and mix until the dough just begins to come together.

Add in the chopped chocolate, and finish mixing just to incorporate the chocolate.

Form the dough into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. 

Bake at 350°F for 8-12 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies, or until light golden brown on the edges.
