It can be frustrating to find that almost all traditional chocolate chip cookie recipes call for brown sugar when you don't have any to hand!

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt.
3. In another large bowl, combine the sugar and butter until the mixture is smooth.
4. Add the vanilla and mix well. One at a time, mix in the eggs, ensuring everything is well combined.
5. Pour in the bowl of dry ingredients and mix well, forming a dough.
6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
