Begin by preheating your oven to 325 degrees and greasing a large cookie sheet.
Melt your butter in a microwave safe dish and then let it rest in your fridge for 3 to 5 minutes. This will allow the butter to cool down so it won't melt the sugar when you add it to the dough. It will help to prevent your cookies from being flat.
In a large mixing bowl add your dry ingredients. Stir well with a large spoon.
Add in your wet ingredients.
Mix well with a hand mixer.
Stir in your chocolate chips with a large spoon.
Roll your cookie dough into tall balls (use a large cookie scoop or about 2 ½ to 3 tbsp of cookie dough). Instead of rolling a perfectly round ball, roll the dough into a taller more oval shape.
Place the dough balls on the greased baking sheet with plenty of spacing.
Chill the dough for about 30 minutes in your fridge.
Bake for 16 to 18 minutes at 325 degrees or until the edges are slightly golden. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 5 to 10 minutes before transferring.
