I have a recipe for soft baked chocolate chip cookies that my family loves, but I saw this recipe and have to give it a try. I need to bake cookies soon for the carriers at my husband's PO -- so I may try this one instead. They say this is the last chocolate chip cookie recipe you will ever need! We all love cookies in our family. Yum!

*Wendy Gaynor’s ‘Perfect’ Chocolate Chunk Cookies
8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

4 cups semisweet chunks (preferably imported). (they say to reduce this)

1. Place the butter in a large bowl and cream at high speed untilfluffy. Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about 4minutes, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, oneat a time, until completely mixed.
2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda. Add to thebutter mixture at low speed until just combined and add vanillaextract. Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl down, until blended. Donot overmix.
3. Add chocolate chunks and mix till thoroughly combined. Refrigeratebatter until cold, preferably overnight.

Dropheaping spoonfuls of batter 2 inches apart on the lined baking sheetsand bake, turning tray once, until golden brown around edges and soft(but not bubbly), about 9 minutes in a convection oven or 12 in aconventional one. Cool on a wire rack.
