Cream butter and sugars together until very light and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes.
Do not skimp on the beating time.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Add in chocolate.
Scoop cookie dough to desired size* on a prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with Maldon salt.
