Bizzuck's Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

Of course, Bizzuck didn't know that these were his favorite chocolate chip cookies when I made them.  He discovered how good they were upon eating them.  That's always nice. 

They were easy, and the dough was divine--I ate at least seven cookies worth of dough.  I already had all the ingredients too, and that too is always nice.  I got the recipe from PlainChicken, and she explained that it's the Nestle Tollhouse recipe, except that it's only half the butter of the original recipe.  That's right, everyone; that means these cookies are low fat.  Right?  She also made hers in a muffin-top pan, which immediately made me want one.
(I'm starting a wish list, and that's the first item.) 

Anyway, these cookies are very good.  You will like them!

Bizzuck's Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups (12 oz bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375.  In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.  In a separate larger bowl, combine the butter, white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until the dough is creamy.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating the dough well after each egg.  Gradually beat in the flour mixture.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Scoop out rounded tablespoonfuls of dough (mine were slightly larger than this) and place two inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown (mine took closer to 11-12).  Cool on the baking sheet for two minutes, and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
