Blue-Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/2 Cups
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed

1 cup salted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

In medium bowl combine flour, soda, and salt. Mix well with
wire whisk. Set aside.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer blend sugars at medium
speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping
down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla extract,
and mix at medium speed until just blended. Do not overmix.
Add the flour mixture and chocolate chips, and blend at low
speed until fully combined. Do not overmix.
