Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 sticks butter (1/2 pound)

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar (light or dark) firmly packed

2 medium or large eggs

2 ½ cups flour

1-teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons real vanilla or vanilla extract

1 package (12 – 16 ounces) chocolate chips



In a large mixing bowl combine the butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Sift together the flour and baking soda and add it to the mixture.  Stir until mixed.  Add in the vanilla and mix thoroughly.  Finally stir in the chocolate chips.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


Drop large tablespoons of the cookie mix onto an ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart.  A 9X12 cookie sheet should hold 12 cookies without them running together.  Place in the preheated oven and cook about 10 to 12 minutes (or until done).  Don’t over cook.
