1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 3/4 cups flour
4 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips
Cream together sugars and butter.
Add eggs, vanilla and mix well.
Add dry ingredients to the butter mixture except the chips and mix until well combined.
Add chocolate chips and mix just until incorporated.
Bake at 350 for approximately 10 minutes (ovens vary). Cookies should be browned around the edges but not set in the center. Let cool and when hardened remove from pan.
If you desire a thinner cookie use less flour, if you prefer a denser cookie simply increase the flour by 1/4 cup.
