1 cup {226 grams} unsalted butter, softened
1 cup {198 grams} granulated white sugar
1 cup {213 grams} packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups {360 grams} all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons hot water
2 cups {340 grams} semi-sweet chocolate baking chips {Ghirardelli are my favorite}


Preheat oven to 375 F.

In large mixing bowl, mix the butter with the sugars on medium speed until nice and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time and the vanilla. Mix on low speed until incorporated. Stir the baking soda with the warm water first and then add to the batter. Stir in the baking powder, salt and then gradually stir in the flour into the sugar mixture.

Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop heaping 2 tablespoon-sized balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets.

Bake for 12-13 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven, let cool and then transfer to a wire rack.
