Chocolate Chip Cookies

My new Kitchenaid mixer came with some recipes, and a request from the groom for chocolate chip cookies. No one really needs a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, but the recipe from the mixer book turned out just like I like. The cookies were thin, chewy in the middle, an crispy on the outside. From the empty cookie plate at our family Christmas celebration, I would say that others liked the as well.

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all purpose flour
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (I prefer milk chocolate chips)

Place sugars, butter, eggs, and vanilla in mixer bowl. Mix about 30 seconds at speed 2. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to speed 4 and beat about 30 seconds.

Turn to Stir speed. Gradually add baking soda, salt, and flour to sugar mixture and mix about 2 minutes. Turn to speed 2 and mix about 30 seconds. Stop and scape bowl, then add chocolate chips. Mix about 15 seconds at speed 2.

Drop rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove from baking sheets immediately and cool on wire racks.
