Very Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

As an avid chocolate chip cookie devotee, I've tried a lot of recipes. This one is my absolute all-time favorite. It's chewy and buttery (don't use margarine!), and it's impossible to eat just one.

1 cup butter (not margarine!)
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Cream together butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet by heaping tablespoons. Bake at 350-degrees for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen.

You can go ahead and put all 12 ounces of chocolate chips in (the entire bag), but that doesn't leave any for snacking on while the cookies are baking.
