       Title: STEVE'S CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
  Categories: Cookies, Usenet
       Yield: 2 dozen
  
     1/2 lb Butter (2 sticks)
   1 1/2 c  Dark brown sugar
       2    Eggs
       2 t  Vanilla extract
   2 1/2 c  Flour, all-purpose
       1 t  Baking soda
       1 lb Chocolate chips
  
   Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl
   until creamy. Spend some time and make sure it is well mixed. Add eggs and
   vanilla and mix well. Add flour and soda, again mixing well. Add chocolate
   chips. If it doesn't look like enough, then add some more.
   
   Make big, thick cookies, big enough so that you get only 2 dozen of them
   out of this recipe. Put them on a lightly-greased baking sheet. Put the
   cookies in the oven, close the door quickly, and turn the heat down to 350
   degrees F. Bake for 10 minutes.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Rich, thick, crunchy chocolate chip cookies.  Yield:  makes 2 dozen.
   
   *  The use of real ingredients instead of imitation ingredients cannot be
   overemphasized.  Chocolate-flavored chips, margarine, vanilla flavoring and
   other such atrocities will completely destroy this recipe.  I use Challenge
   butter and Ghirardelli chocolate.
   
   : Difficulty:  easy if you have a machine that can cream sugar and butter,
   moderate otherwise.
   : Time:  10 minutes preparation, 10 minutes cooking, 10 minutes cooling.
   : Precision:  measure the ingredients.
