Preheat oven to 350°F. 

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium-sized bowl.

In a separate large bowl, beat the softened butter, sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Then set it aside.

Beat in egg and add vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides of your bowl as needed.

Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until combined. Start your mixer on a low speed.

Add in chocolate chips.

Drop your dough in rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie pan or baking sheet with parchment.

Bake in the oven for 11 to 13 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.

When they’re done, take the pan out and let your cookies cool for 3 minutes on the pan, then move them to a cooling grid to cool completely.

All done!  Ready to share and enjoy!
