Carol RamosThe Pastry Chef's Baking

3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup cake flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1-1/4 cups sugar

1-1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar

1-1/2 cups butter, softened

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 12-ounce package (2 cups) plus 1/4 cup extra semisweet real chocolate chips or chunks

Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (2 to 3 minutes). Add eggs and vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often until well mixed (1 minute). Reduce speed to low. Continue beating, gradually adding flour mixture, until well mixed (2 to 3 minutes). By hand, stir in chocolate chips.

2. Cover the dough and place it into the fridge until chilled, about 30 minutes. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
