Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

Does anyone else remember the giant chocolate chip cookies we had in school?  For me it was what made high school great!!  Every day 3rd period I would walk down to the lunch room and get a hot, fresh, gooey chocolate chip cookie for $0.25.  Seriously, I have missed those cookies.  I have thought about them often.  I even thought at one point that I would drive the 3 hours to my old high school during the day just to buy a cookie, I've been told they still have them.  The other day I just couldn't take it anymore.  So I grabbed my trusty old cookie recipe and whipped up a batch.  They were amazing!!!!  Hope you all enjoy.

Chocolate Chip Cookies:
1 lb. butter
2 c brown sugar
1 1/2 c granulated sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
6 c flour
2 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix butter and sugars, till well blended. Add eggs and vanilla, beat another minute. Add baking soda, salt and flour. Mix well, then stir in chocolate chips. Spoon onto un-greased cookie sheet, bake 8-10 minutes. Makes about 5 dozen (regular size).

For the bigger cookies I just form them into a big ball about the size of my hand then place on cookie sheet and flatten it out a little with the palm of your hand.  I usually only cook about 2 at a time. They take a little longer to cook, somewhere between 12-15 minutes depending on how you like them, a little less if you like the really gooey center
