1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar and sugar until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla, beat until combined and creamy. Add the flour, and baking soda, beat until combined. Stir in the the chocolate chips.
2. Using an ice cream scoop (this makes things really easy) or 1/4 cup measure, roll the dough into balls and place 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet (about 5 per pan). Place 2 chocolate wafers on top and gently push down to flatten the balls just slightly.
4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cookies just beginning to set on the edges, but still doughy in the center. Remove from the oven, sprinkle a wee bit of flakey sea salt on cookies and let the cookies cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet. They will continue to cook slightly as they sit on the baking sheet. Eat warm (highly recommended) or let cool and store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
