My perfectly crispy chocolate chip cookies

Hey all! Thanks so much for checking out my first ever recipe video! If you've visited my blog before, you may have seen me include a recipe for perfectly crispy chocolate chip cookies (with some informative photos as well.) But if you've ever wanted to watch me put the dough together and bake them to perfection, today is your lucky day.
Check out the video below to see this infamous (well infamous among those who know me...) recipe in action!
Servings: 36-48 cookies (depending on the size you make!)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup of unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup of granulated white sugar
3/4 cup of firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspooons pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Combine well. (Do not skip this step out of laziness. I've found that sifting the flour breaks it up well so that it better combines with the wet ingredients later without clumping and giving you white spots on your cookies)
In a larger bowl, combine the softened butter, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Scrape down the side of the bowl as needed and make sure that these ingredients are all well-combined. Make sure there are no clumps of brown sugar. If the butter is still clumping, no problem. You can mix it into the dry ingredients well later with your hands.
Pour dry ingredients into the wet ingredients one cup at a time, and combine well. At first, you'll be using your spatula to mix it, but as it becomes a thick dough, you will be able to start using your hands to mix. Be sure to massage the butter well into the mixture at this point so there are no clumps.
Add chocolate chips and make sure they're evenly spaced in the mixture
Try some of the dough. It's delicious when raw! (But only do this if you trust the source of your eggs)
Use a tablespoon or a small scoop spoon and create your cookies on a wide baking tray, smashing them slightly as you go so that they are a little less than a centimeter thick
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I let the cookies bake for 22 minutes, but because every oven is different, I recommend putting your first batch in for 15 minutes, adding a few minutes at a time afterward until they are perfectly golden brown, and then following up your next batches with the same amount of time.
Wait a few minutes after removing them from the oven to let them cool and harden a bit before platting them or setting them on a cooling rack.
All done! Serve with a cold glass of milk and enjoy!
I hope that this is helpful for anyone wanting to indulge in some crispy cookie goodness. Please let me know if you tried out my recipe at all! And be sure toPlease give me a like on Facebook and subscribe to my YouTube channel if you'd like to see my future recipes and lifestyle videos!
