Thick & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

AKA Lee's Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
2 egg
3 tsp. vanilla
5 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
! bag or more chocolate chips (we like to use milk chocolate chips)

Cream butter, beat sugars, eggs, then vanilla. Mix salt and baking soda into flour. Stir in flour until almost mixed, then add chocolate chips and continue stirring just until flour is all mixed in. Do not over mix. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Form a tablespoon of dough into a ball for each cookie. Place on cookie sheet and bake until cookie just springs back when touched, about 20-25 minutes. Cool cookies on wire rack.

These are the thick and chewy cookies, not the thin crunchy type.

The person I got this recipe from essentially got it from the toll house cookie recipe, but modified it based on her experience at Mrs. Fields cookies.

It is a nice change of pace from my "normal" chocolate chip cookie recipe I make. These are REALLY thick and chewy. yum!
