Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius. While it preheats, apply parchment paper to two baking sheets.
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl (flour, baking soda, salt). Then use an electric mixer at medium speed to beat the butter and two sugars until they are smooth. It would take about two minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and let set the mixer on its lowest speed.
Once the butter and egg mixture is blended, add the flour mixture, mixing all of them together until they are thoroughly combined.
Add in the chocolate chips, stirring it all together with a wooden spoon.
Use an ice cream scoop to properly drop the dough onto the baking sheet, making the perfect chocolate cookie shape. Make sure that you drop the cookie dough two to three inches apart from each other.
Bake the cookies one sheet at a time to ensure a thorough cooking from top to bottom. You'll know if the cookies are ready to go once the bottom and edges are lightly brown. The top should feel firm when touched. This would take about 10 to 13 minutes.
After taking the cookies out of the oven, let the cookies cool by letting it sit out for less than ten minutes and then transfer it to your wire rack for it to completely cool. Serve it with milk or ice cream and enjoy!
