Preheat your oven to 375ºF and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper (not wax paper)
Add softened butter to the bowl of your stand mixer with the whisk attachment and cream until smooth
Add in your brown sugar and white sugar and whisk on low until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes)
Add in your eggs one at a time, letting each mix in fully before adding the next
Add in your vanilla, salt, and baking soda
Add in your flour and chocolate chips and mix until just combined
Scoop onto your cookie sheet using a #20 cookie scoop or about two Tablespoons of dough per cookie.
Bake for 6 minutes, rotate the pan then bake for another 5-6 minutes or until the center is no longer shiny. Do not over-bake.
Cookies will be soft at first but will harden as they cool.
