"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

1 c.(2 sticks) softened butter (not margarine)
1/2 c.granulated sugar
1 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 tsp.vanilla extract
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
chopped nuts if desired

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla
3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda
4. Combine wet and dry ingredients
5. Stir in the chocolate chips
6. With your fingers, place golf-ball size dough portions 2 in. apart on a ungreased cookie sheet
7. Bake for 9 minutes or until edges are light brown

It is very important that you do not exceed the cookie time above, even if the cookies appear to be under-baked. When the cookies are removed from the oven, the sugars will stay hot and continue the cooking process. The finished product should be soft in the middle and crunchy around the edges.

Personal Notes:
This recipe beats any that you will find on the back of chocolate chips bags. People say that these are the best home-made chocolate chip cookies they have ever eaten. I always made these cookies and gave some to our foreign exchange students when they were leaving. Their parents wrote and asked for the recipe.
