2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 Tablespoons UNSALTED butter room temp

3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup fresh strawberries chopped into small pieces
1 cup milk chocolate chips/white chocolate chips
additional chocolate chips for topping
Preheat oven to 370F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium size bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, using an electric or stand mixer, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, and vanilla extract until combined.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing between each egg.
Add flour mixture and mix until just combined. DO NOT OVERMIX!
Using a spatula, stir in fresh strawberries and chocolate chips until combined.
Using a cookie scoop/ice cream scooper, scoop dough into balls about 2 Tablespoons each and place onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, rotate baking sheet clockwise and bake for additional 4-5 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
Immediately after taking cookies out of the oven, place additional chocolate chips on top of cookies and let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack.
