  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter and sugar. Beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Add the dry ingredients all at once and mix for 5 seconds.
  5. Add chocolate chips and mix the dough until the flour is incorporated. Do not overmix.
  6. Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 2 hour, preferably overnight. You can scoop it out with a 1,5 tablespoon scoop onto a baking sheet and chill. (Chilled cookie dough can be tricky to scoop out.)
  7. Place funfetti onto a plate.
  8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  9. Line a cookie sheet with a parchment paper.
  10. Roll each scoop of the cookie dough in the funfetti and place on the sheet.
  11. Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes ( 9 minutes was the magic number for me).
  12. Cool for 5 minutes on the sheet. Transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely.
