ultimate chocolate chip cookies

the goods:

3 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 and 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 and 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 and 1/4 cups (2 and 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 and 1/2 cups packed, light-brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on medium-high until light and fluffy, 6 minutes.

Reduce speed to medium-low and beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Mix in flour mixture just until incorporated.

Fold in chocolate chips and chunks.

Using a 1/4 cup ice-cream scoop, drop dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange 9 unbaked cookie dough balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake until edges are light golden brown, 17 to 18 minutes.

Transfer cookies to a wire rack to let cool.

Bake remaining dough using new parchment each time.

Milk is a necessity!

These were the largest, most delicious chocolate chip cookies I have ever had. I ate all of them! I can't wait to make more (even though I am scared).
