Ingredients:  
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 300F. 2. In medium bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Mix well with wire whisk. Set aside. 3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, blend sugars at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla extract, and mix at medium speed until just blended. Do not overmix. 4. Add the flour and chocolate chips, and blend at low speed until just mixed. Do not overmix. 5. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer cookies immediately to a cool surface with a spatula.

Personal Notes:
When I make these for Daniel, I double the recipe except for the chocolate chips- he doesn't like so much chocolate. I use an ice cream scoop to portion out the dough, placing the dough balls right next to each other on a cookie sheet. I place the dough in the freezer for a couple hours. When frozen, I put the dough balls into ziplock freezer bags for later use. This way Daniel can have fresh-baked cookies whenever he wants-or he can just eat the cookie dough! The baking length is about the same (though we usually under bake them for our preference).
