Cookie Friday: Chocolate Chip Cookies

Now.  Before you get bored with the fact that we are just doing plain, ol' chocolate chip cookies today, let me tell you.  This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have ever had.  These cookies are specifically asked for anytime I am needed to bring treats or a dessert to an event.  They are soft and chewy AND they stay that way even days after they've been made.

These are the cookies I grew up eating; my mom made them all the time, and I love them.  They are perfect all on their own and/or with a glass of milk.  But they are also perfect for making ice cream sandwiches with.  Just make them a little larger than normal, slap some ice cream between two of them and yumm-o!!

So, without further's the recipe for THE Best Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/3 c. butter (do NOT substitute margarine!)
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
12 oz chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.

Cream butter and sugars together; add eggs and vanilla.  
Mix in all of the dry ingredients and then gently stir in the chocolate chips.

Bake for approximately 8 minutes (the tops of your cookies should just barely be turning brown).  Remove from oven and let sit on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.

By the way?  This dough is perfect on its own, before being cooked.  
Just sayin' - in case you're a cookie dough sort of person.
