For rolling the cookies
Combine your dry ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a large mixing bowl then mix well.
Next, mix in your wet ingredients and mix with a hand mixer until well combined. Be careful not to over mix the dough.
Stir in the chocolate chips with a large spoon.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let your dough chill in your fridge for at least one hour, preferably two.
After the dough is chilled, form balls from about 1 ½ tablespoons of dough.
Roll each ball in the granulated sugar first and then in the powdered sugar.
Place dough balls on a greased baking sheet, leaving room for the cookies to spread.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
Let the cookies rest for about 10 minutes on the baking sheet before carefully transferring to a cooling rack. Be very careful and gentle as your transfer them.
Be sure to let the dough chill or the cookies may spread too much.
Do not over mix the dough.
Leave room for the cookies to spread.
Be VERY careful and gentle when transferring baked cookies to the cooling rack. They will firm up once cooled.
