Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been searching for my PERFECT chocolate chip cookie recipe, and until recently, I've had absolutely no luck in the search. Over the years I have tried a bunch of different ways to make chocolate chip cookies, but after finding this one recipe, I will never, ever go back or make them a different way. This recipe is my new favorite and it's here to stay. I found this particular recipe on the 80 Breakfasts blog

1 cup salted butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until fluffy
Add in eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth and completely combined. 
Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until everything is fully incorporated.
Add in your semi-sweet chocolate chips and store your dough in the refrigerator for 24 hrs 
When baking the cookies, preheat your oven to 360 degrees and drop small rounds of dough onto a greased baking sheet, bake for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake. 
Let cookies cool at least 5 minutes before serving.
