The dough for these cookies will keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator or freeze it before baking so you can have it on hand whenever you need a warm chocolate chip cookie.

Combine cake flour, bread flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk or sift dry ingredients together to blend and aerate.
Place butter and sugars together in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium for about 5 minutes or until very light.
Scrape bowl and add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla.
Reduce speed to low, add flour mixture and blend until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and gently mix until incorporated.
Bake Now: Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop dough onto the prepared sheet using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop (#16, 2¼-inches in diameter). Place mounds at least 2-inches apart. Sprinkle each piece lightly with sea salt and bake until golden brown but still soft, 18 to 20 minutes.
Bake Later: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop dough onto the prepared sheet using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop (#16, 2¼-inches in diameter); cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24 to 72 hours.
