Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. (Or use one baking sheet and repeat baking step.)
Mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a mixer, cream the butter and sugars together. Then add the eggs (one at a time) and vanilla. Then slowly add in the flour mixture, doing it in 2-3 batches. Then gently stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop or a spoon, form balls the size of a tablespoon and place them about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets. Bake for about 12 minutes, depending on your oven and how quickly they brown up for you. Cool on the baking sheet.
