These are my favorite cookies. They're tasty and let's be honest, who doesn't have a nice, warm, memory about chocolate chip cookies and their Mom? Here's the recipe I grew up eating and now make for my two babies. Enjoy.
1 lb butter (2 cups)
1 1/2 cups white ugsar
2 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 T vanilla
6 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugars. Mix in vanilla, salt, and soda. Mix in eggs. Mix in flour. Stir in choclate chips. Drop spoonfuls onto greased chookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
This batch makes between 8-10 dozen (depending on size)
I make a big batch, freeze some cookies or refrigerate leftover cookie dough. It stays good in the fridge for about 3 weeks. Then you can have warm cookies anytime!
