3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
16 oz. chocolate chips
Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until blended. Combine flour, soda and salt in a small bowl and slowly add to the butter mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes for soft gooey cookies, or up to 14 minutes for crispier cookies. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Yield about 40 cookies.
Sweetnicks’ Notes: Wonderfully soft and gooey.
