never-fail chocolate chip cookies

part 1
once upon a time, i had a wonderful chemistry professor named dr. wood. he one day made cookies for the WHOLE class (250 students!) to help them think about the different things we eat and how we metabolize each part of them.

part 2
one sunday evening, i was craving chocolate chip cookies, and i was willing to forsake my ghiradelli's recipe if i could get a hold of dr. wood's. luckily, i had his cell phone number, so i called him up, and he gave me the recipe. i've never gone back.

Dr. Wood's Chocolate Chip Cookies
mix together:
1 c. white sugar
2.5 c. brown sugar
1 lb. butter

add one at a time:
3 eggs

mix in:
2 T. vanilla
1 t. salt
1.5 t. baking soda
6 c. flour
12 oz. chocolate chips (i like milk, but semi-sweet work too)

bake at 350 F for 7-9 minutes. (i like 7 minutes, they come out soft and just a little gooey. it really depends on your oven.)

i make them small, and usually get about 6 dozen cookies. delicious!
