-¾ cups granulated sugar
-¾ cups brown sugar (packed)

-Wax or parchment paper
-1 tablespoon and a teaspoon from a set
-1 cup (dry)
-¼ cup (dry)
Step 1: Making the Cookies
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Get out the smaller mixing bowl. Use the dry 1-cup measuring cup to scoop up two cups total of the all-purpose flour. Use the teaspoon to scoop 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of salt. Combine these ingredients into the small bowl and mix with the whisk.
Get out the bigger mixing bowl, add the two sticks of softened butter. Use the ¼ dry cup, and scoop sugar out three times to equal ¾ of a cup. Then use the ¼ cup again to pack the brown sugar into it three times to equal ¾. Get out the 1 teaspoon measurer and pour the vanilla extract into it and put it into the mixing bowl.
Beat all of the ingredients from step 3 together, and then add an egg one at a time, continuing to use the electric mixer.
Add in the flour mixture a little bit at a time with the electric mixer.
Stop the electric mixer, and stir in either the 10 oz. bag of chocolate chips or the 2 cups of it.
Get out the baking sheet.
Get out the tablespoon and use it to scoop dough onto the cookie sheet, and put them an inch or two apart.
Put the baking sheet with the dough on it into the oven for 9-11 minutes or whenever the cookie is golden on the edges.
Let the baking sheets cool for 2 minutes. Get out wire racks and tear parchment paper to put under the wire racks.
Repeat Steps 8-10 until the dough is all used and all of the cookies are made.
