  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 cup of bittersweet 60% chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spray a 13 x 9 baking pan with baking spray.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugars and salt for about 1 minute. Beat in vanilla.

Reduce speed and add flour in 3 additions, beating just until blended. Stir in 3/4 cup chocolate chips.

Transfer dough to an ungreased 13-by-9-inch baking pan. Press dough evenly on bottom of pan with your fingers.

Bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes; do not underbake. Let cool for 5 minutes.  Transfer cookies onto parchment paper and cut into triangles or rectangles.
