One night I was in the mood to make cookies, I wanted oatmeal raisin, the kids wanted chocolate chip, and the husband wanted peanut butter chocolate chip. So how do I choose? Thats easy... make one cookie to please everyone. Thats just what I did. Because it's what I do.

Add dry mixture to creamed sugar mixture and mix well. About 3 minutes. Be sure to scrape down sides of bowl.
Fold in milk chocolate chips.
Line cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. Drop by tablespoon, or use a cookie scoop to drop in one inch balls on cookie sheet, about two inches apart. Flatten dough with a fork to about a quarter inch thick.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cookies will be soft inside, crispy outside.

Let cookies stand for 2 minutes on cookie sheet, then remove to wire rack and allow to cool.

Or eat warm... thats the best!
