Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
Place the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk and set aside.
Place the butter and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk or paddle attachment (or simply use a hand mixer). Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until blended.
Add the flour mixer and blend on low until the flour is incorporated. Then beat on high for a few seconds. Add in the chocolate chips and beat a few seconds more until they're incorporated.
Using a 2 tablespoon dough scooper (or just a large spoon), scoop onto your prepared baking sheet. Don't flatten them. Lightly sprinkle with flaky sea salt or kosher salt.
Bake them until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.
Cool on pan for 1 minute then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool (but eat them warm because that's the best!!)
