Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 3 dozen cookies

1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. buttermilk (do not omit this)
1 pkg. milk chocolate chips

Cream the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix in 2 cups of the flour, the baking soda, and the salt. Mix well. Add butter milk and mix some more. Add remaining flour. Stir in chocolate chips and drop by spoonfuls or cookie scoop onto cookie sheet. Bake 375* for 10 minutes. Do not overbake!

My thoughts: These are blue-ribbon-winners-at-the-county-fair chocolate chip cookies. The buttermilk keeps them soft. (I don't like crunchy cookies.) If you're tempted to toss in all the flour at once---don't. It doesn't mix right and there is something about putting the buttermilk in between the additions of flour.

Serve it with: Cold milk...what else??!!!
