Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment, set aside.
In bowl of mixer cream the butter until light and fluffy, add in the sugars and continue to mix until well combined.
Add in the egg, vanilla paste, baking powder, salt, baking powder and mix well to combine scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Slowly add in the flour with mixer on low and mix until dough forms.
By hand fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop (I used a standard cookie scoop) cookies onto cookie sheet.
Bake 11-12 minutes (start checking the oven at 10 minutes in case your oven runs hotter). Edges should be golden brown, tops should be starting to brown and little cracks on the surface starting to form.
Let cool completely.
