Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Step 2: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Step 3: Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla.
Step 4: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
Step 5: Stir in the chocolate chips.
Step 6: Drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Step 7: Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden but the centers are still soft.
Step 8: Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely. Then enjoy your delicious homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Baking: You will realize that they are ready when the edges of the cookies begin to look slightly golden. It is important not to wait for them to take color on top, otherwise, they would be very hard when they cool down.
Making the dough: It is important to let the dough rest in the fridge so that when cooking it maintains its shape. To stretch the dough we can use a little flour on the counter, but be careful, without abusing it, because otherwise, the cookies would be like stones.
Chocolate choice: You can use both chocolate chips, which are available in almost any supermarket, but you can also chop up chocolate bars.
