These are definitely an awesome Chocolate Chip Cookie and now represent the best CCC I have found. Thanks to Jay for experimenting with recipes and coming up with this one!
2 cups flour
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 stick of margarine
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350
Let the butter and margarine sit on the counter for an hour or two (if frozen) It should be soft (a quick microwave zap to soften works also).
Put softened butter, both sugars, and vanilla into a bowl and mix until smooth and creamy
Crack the eggs into a small bowl and break up with a fork
Mix eggs into the sugar/butter mixture one at a time
Mix salt, flour and baking soda in a bowl. add the flour mixture to the sugar/butter mixture a third at a time
Add chocolate chips
Scoop them onto the cookie trays and cook for 9-13 minutes (or until they are the color you like, they should just about flatten out before removing from oven)
Makes a thin, chewy cookie. very tasty!
