Preheat oven to 350˚ F after step 5. Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, w/ paddle attachment, on high speed: cream together the 2 sticks of butter, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of white sugar until light and fluffy, scraping bowl and breaking clumps as needed.
Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in 2 tsp of vanilla.
Combine 2 1/4 cups of flour, 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of salt and gradually stir into the creamed mixture.

Use an ice cream scoop to get even balls of dough, scraping against the side of the bowl to get a flat base. Place scoops of dough onto baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Mine fit onto 2 cookie sheets and made 18 cookies. Tip: for prettier cookies, you can stick 2-3 chocolate chips on top of every cookie. Cover with plastic wrap and Refrigerate prepared cookie dough balls for at least 1 hour before baking.
Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 12-14 min at 350˚F, until edges are just turning light golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet. Once at room temp, you can store them in tupperware.
