       Title: Steve’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 24 servings
  
     1/2 lb Butter
   1 1/2 c  Dark brown sugar
       2    Eggs
       2 ts Vanilla extract
   2 1/2 c  All-purpose flour
       1 ts Baking soda
       1 lb Chocolate chips
  
      Preheat oven to 375.  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 . Bake for 10
   minutes.
   
        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.   2 dozen
