Chocolate chip cookies

I was in the mood for cookies today, and there is absolutely nothing better than a chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven. Add nuts if you desire; coconut is great, too. Be creative; make 'em with chocolate caramel chips, or butterscotch, or add dried fruit. You can't ruin these cookies, and you can't find a better chocolate chip cookie recipe. If you need a chocolate fix, there is no comparison.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks, 1/2 pound) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated [white] sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups (12-ounce package) Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE in preheated 375-degree oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
