  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the butter with white sugar and brown sugar until the mixture is well combined. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and stir in vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture, about 1 cup at a time, then mix in the chocolate chips. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes on the baking sheets before removing cookies to finish cooling.

I cut this recipe in half EXCEPT the chocolate chips--I used a full bag. My cookies were done at nine minutes baked at 350*. I let them cool on the baking sheet for a minute before pulling them off to cool on the kitchen counter (I don't use cookie racks to cool my cookies--I've always found I get a softer cookie if I let them cool on the kitchen counter.) These turned out like any good chocolate chip cookie, just like they should. The boys enjoyed them. I think these would be good if I added pecans next time.

These cookies had a great taste, but for some reason the texture was more like a biscuit.

fantastic recipe. they took a little longer than listed to cook, but I think that was my oven more than anything.

Awesome recipe! I've made these cookies twice. The second time I added white chocolate chips, pecans, and raisins. It's quick and easy to make, and they're just delicious:)

These came out perfectly for someone who can't quite get the hang of baking (especially cookies), so this is definitely a well named recipe, No-Fail. Will be using this one again and again!

Its was good but not perfect. The outside was crunchy and the inside is chewy. Not bad.
