I made these yesterday at work. It's a very basic recipe, but the cookies are still wonderful. This makes over three dozen cookies portioned with a 4oz scoop, but if you halve the recipe you'll get a more reasonable amount for home baking (or make the full recipe and freeze them!).
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 lb butter or margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 cups white sugar
4 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
2 bags (I assume it refers to one of those normal-sized bags) chocolate chips
Cream butter & sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Fold in the dry ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips. Bake at 350F for 12 - 15 minutes. DON'T OVERBAKE!
