Growing up, my family LOVED chocolate chip cookies. We didn't get treats very often, but when we did, it was either vanilla ice cream or chocolate chip cookies. I can still remember all of us standing around the mixing bowl grabbing for the chocolate chips in the uncooked dough.
I've tried other chocolate chip recipes, but is never compares to this.
I'm not sure where this recipe came from as my family has used it for probably over 30 yrs. But it always works and it always is delicious.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
