5. Remove the bowl from the mixer stand. With a rubber spatula, stir in the chocolate chips.

6. Drop tablespoons of the batter onto the baking sheets, setting them 1 inch apart. Bake the cookies for 13 to 15 minutes or until just starting to brown. Rotate the sheets halfway through to ensure even cooking. Let the cookies cool on the sheets for a few minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
