½ teaspoon salt

1¼ cups sugar

1¼ cups light brown sugar, firmly packed

1½ cups unsalted butter (3 sticks), softened

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

2¾ cup dark chocolate chips or chunks

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Use 2-inch diameter scoop or drop dough by 2 tablespoons onto baking sheets 2 inches apart. Bake 12--14 minutes until cookies are light golden brown. Do not over bake.

Cool 5 minutes on pans before transferring to cooling rack. Store tightly covered.
