  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.

  4. Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  5. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, form balls of dough and place them on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the centers are set.
  7. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
