Gather supplies and measure out ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients and set them aside.
Melt butter in the microwave.
In a stand mixer bowl, add the melted butter, sugars, and extract one at a time.
Slowly add in the flour to the wet ingredients.
Once dough forms (it will be on the wetter side), fold in chocolate chips or chunks.
Form tablespoon-sized balls and line them with at least 2-3" between balls on your baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes checking on them at the 8 minute mark. They might look undercooked but will deepen in color and firm up once cooled. I give a variation in times since ovens and altitudes vary.
Allow cookies to cool before baking the remaining cookies.
