Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

 I’m old school. I prefer a good old Toll House cookie to the new fangled  giant half raw cookies popping up all over Utah. There are cookie/soda shops on every corner. Not one of them has a decent cookie, although there are lines that wind around the building indicating not everyone shares my opinion. A good cookie has a crunchy edge and a soft center. It tastes buttery and not too sweet.  And it is warm, or at room temperature, not straight out of a refrigerator. This recipe is close to the Tollhouse version.  I’ve tried many many cookie recipes, and I still come back to this one. Ingredients 1 cup unsalted butter, directly from refrigerator 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 eggs, cold, directly from refrigerator 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 1/4 cups flour - if you live at high altitude use 2 1/2 cups 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees Combine
