Chocolate Chip Cookies

I forget about the recipe box in my cupboard all the time.  3 x 5 cards of recipes copied down from my mom, from friends, and a few Pampered Chef recipe cards.   Do you have one of these hangin’ out with your cookbooks?  No?  Just Me?

This is a great recipe for a cookie that is chewy but not gooey, and gets a little crunchy around the edges.  And who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies on a random Wednesday night?
