Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another chocolate chip cookie recipe… it reminds me of a line in the movie Aladdin "another suitor for the princess". The mundane process of mixing, scooping and baking… the time consuming work that results in a good cookie, but not the perfect cookie.
But… I'm gonna keep trying them until I get it right. I have this idea in my head of what the perfect cookie should be. The taste, texture, color, etc… and this one is closer than any other I've tried. It's a really good cookie; a chewy cookie which is the only thing that keeps it from being perfect.

The taste - Delicious! The appearance - very appetizing!! The Texture… well, chewy... so if you like that kind of thing!!

3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
12 oz chocolate chips
parchment paper

Preheat oven to 350. Beat butter and sugars at medium speed in a stand mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until creamy.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small mixing bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Beat in chocolate chips just until combined. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper lined baking sheets.
Bake at 350 for 10 to 14 minutes. Remove to wire racks and cool completely.
