Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes about 3 dozen
2 1/4 c. All purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. margarine
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips (please don't use milk chocolate chips it is just wrong!)

Preheat oven to 350F.  In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.  In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.  Reduce speed to low; add the salt vanilla, and eggs.  Beat until well mixed. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop heaping TBSP- size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.

Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8-10 min.  Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1-2 min.  Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.  EAT ONE ! as your family will eat them in record time.
