Ingredients

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 10″ cast iron skillet with cooking spray.

Add both sugars and butter to a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth.  Mix in the vanilla.  Now beat in the eggs, one at a time.  Time for the dry ingredients, add the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Mix until just combined.  With a wooden spoon or spatula stir in the chocolate chips.
