Extraordinary Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla
2 eggs
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 bag (24oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, beat butter, sugars, vanilla & eggs on medium speed or with spoon until light & fluffy. Stir in flour, baking soda & salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in chocolate chips.

On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by tablespoons 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.

Looking at that recipe, I bet that makes a LOT of cookies! I'm always looking for recipes like that. I run out of them so fast. Yummy!
