I have made this recipe many, many times. Each time, these cookies get better and better. I have made these without chocolate chips and are just as delicious.
MARY’S CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla extract
4 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
2 Teaspoons baking soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Package (24 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (I use milk chocolate and the mini chocolate chips)
HEAT oven to 350 degrees.
Mix butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.
DROP dough by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
BAKE 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
About 3 1/2 dozen cookies
