Chocolate Chip Goodness Doesn't Get Much Better Than This

I have received a considerable number of requests for this recipe.  Up until now have been reluctant to share.  But, when you figure out the secret, why keep it to yourself?

So, with no further excuses, I divulge....

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 & 1/2 sticks butter, at room temperature
2 large eggs at room temperature
1 t vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips (or semi-sweet, if you prefer)

Pre-heat oven to 325
Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, add and mix in vanilla and eggs until combined. Add combined flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until incorporated, but do not over-mix. Fold in Chocolate chips.
Scoop dough into rounded balls, fitting 12 to a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. They will look like they aren't finished, but they will be done, and soft.

Remove to a cooling rack and enjoy!
