    Our best-in-class take on this classic treat has a buttery flavour, a chewy centre and a subtly crisp exterior. Oh, and you can tweak the recipe to make them crisp or soft, too.In large bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda; stir into butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. (Make-ahead: Shape into disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze in freezer bag for up to 1 month. Bring to room temperature before continuing with recipe.)

    Roll by 2 tbsp into balls. Arrange, 3 inches (8 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets; flatten slightly.

    Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350?F (180?C) oven until tops are no longer shiny, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool on pans for 2 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely.(Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

    Tip from The Test Kitchen:
    Baking sheets vary in thickness and finish, which affect the doneness of cookies. A heavy, shiny uncoated baking sheet will allow the cookies to bake most evenly.

    • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
