Everyone has the one cookie recipe that they love. It's usually the cookies they grew up eating. These are mine - as a youth, when I was bored, I made cookies.
That holds true today, and now I have helpers that join in the fun. I love whipping up a batch of fresh cookies and eating them warm until I'm half-sick from the deliciousness of it all. These are best with chocolate chips and butterscotch chips, but I was out of butterscotch chips when I made this batch. I attribute the recipe to my mom, but I'm sure it came off of the back of a chocolate-chip bag long ago.

Mix ingredients in order listed. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet.
Bake 350° for approx 12min or until golden brown.
Here's the dough:
And here it is dropped out ready to go:
