Dan and Kay Nelson


1 cup (2 sticks) Unsalted butter, soften to room temperature,
+ more for greasing
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 c. (12-ounce package) semisweet or milk chocolate chips

Place an oven rack in the middle position and preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly rub two cookie sheets with butter or use nonstick baking sheets. Set aside.

Put the butter and the sugars in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer or a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat again. Slowly add the flour (sifting is best), baking powder, baking soda and salt, and beat on low speed until well blended. Add the chocolate and mix thoroughly by hand.

Using a teaspoon as a guide, scoop a portion of the dough and, with your hands, roll each portion into a 1-inch ball. Place the balls on each cookie sheet, 3 cookies per row in 5 rows. Bake each batch, one sheet at a time, for 6 to 8 minutes. The cookies will be firm to the touch and just beginning to brown. Remove from the oven and cool on the sheet for about 3 minutes. Then transfer with a spatula to a wire rack for cooling. Let the cookie sheet cool down a couple of minutes before reusing so the dough does not melt. Store in an airtight container.
