The BEST high altitude chocolate chip cookIes!

Here in Denver, we have gotten used to home made chocolate chip cookies being flat, flat, flat.  I think I've finally found a keeper though.  These are so good that, I've made them three times over the past three weeks!!  We are eating far too many cookies are here, but can't help it, they are so chewy, chocolately good!

High Altitude Chocolate Chip Cookes
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
3.5 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
12 ounces chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla and mix.  Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in small bown and add to wet mixture in thirds.  Don't over mix.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Bake at 350º for 12-15 minutes (14 at our hosue!).  I

I find they are chewy-er when we make them a bit bigger!
