I have been looking for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe and I have tried several without the results I was looking for. As I was going through boxes of old recipes from my mom, I found this recipe that she made all the time. It has been years and years since I made it. So, I decided to try it again. It's still a good cookie, and better than the others I have tried, so wanted to share with y'all.
