Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe from The Cookie Bible.
These are honest-to-goodness the best darn chocolate chip cookies ever!  People rave about them wherever I take them.  Unfortunately, I can't take any sort of credit for this recipe.  The only time I've altered it is when I'm in the mood to try to make them a little healthier.  Rather than doing all white flour, you can do 1 cup all-purpose flour and 2/3 cup whole wheat flour - you won't even taste a difference.
1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
12 TBS (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
12 oz. Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract.  Add the egg.
  4. Gradually mix in the flour mixture to the butter mixture.  Add the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop on a baking sheet in tablespoon size amounts, spreading about 2 inches apart.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown.  Cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
