 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          butter or margarine
    1 1/3  cups          sugar
    1 2/3  cups          brown sugar
    1      tablespoon    vanilla
    4                    eggs
    5 1/2  cups          flour
    2      teaspoons     salt
    2      teaspoons     baking soda
    2      cups          semisweet chocolate chips
    1      cup           nuts -- chopped
 
 Cut four 14"x12 pieces of waxed paper or plastic wrap. In a bowl, cream
 butter or margarine, sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in vanilla and eggs until
 light and fluffy. In a bowl, combine dry ingredients. Stir flour mixture into
 egg mixture until blended. Add chocolate chips and nuts. 
 Divide dough into 4 pieces. Shape each piece into an 8 to 10 inch roll. Wrap
 rolls in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Place in a freezer container with a
 tight-fitting lid, or wrap airtight in a piece of foil. Label and date. Store
 in freezer. Use within 6 months.
 
 To make cookies:
 Slightly thaw a roll of dough. Preheat oven to 350F. Cut dough into slices or
 chunks. Arrange pieces on an ungreased baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart.
 Bake 10 minutes until browned around edges. Remove and cool.
