In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add sugars, baking soda and salt; beat until combined. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as possible; stir in any remaining flour with a spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 to 10 minutes, until golden. Cool on wire racks.
