Preheat the oven to 325° and line baking sheets with parchment.

Cream together the butter, cream cheese and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the Vanilla.

Sift together dry ingredients and then add them to the butter mixture. Beat until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Place a large scoop (about 2 tbsp) on the prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your hand. Bake 12-14 minutes (mine took about 16 minutes) or until edges are looking light golden brown.

Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheets before moving to wire racks to cool completely.
