Here is a chocolate chip cookie recipe. This particular recipe is one of my favorites. I realize there are many, many recipes out there for chocolate chip cookies.
EXTRAORDINARY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
11/2 cups butter or margarine, softened
11/4 cups granulated sugar
11/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
1 bag (24oz) semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 F. In large bowl, beat butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs on medium speed or with spoon until light and fluffy. (Dough will be stiff.) Stir in chocolate chips.
On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by tablespoon or #40 cookie/ice cream scoop 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly. Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft.) Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. About 6 dozen cookies.
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft.) Bake 10-12 minutes.
For nut lovers: Stir in 2 cups coarsely chopped nuts with the chocolate chips.
I like to make ice cream sandwiches with these cookies.
