Stop your mixer, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined about 1 minute.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Take your cookie dough out of the freezer. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and measure out your dough using a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon. Form the dough into balls and place them 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Smash the balls slightly when you place them on the parchment paper.
You may store baked cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for about 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months. You can also freeze any leftover raw dough so you can enjoy these cookies anytime.
