These are my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies ever! This is my mom's recipe. So a little about my mom, she's legendary in her cooking. I remember growing up and going to potlucks late, as always, and when we arrived everybody would get back up and back in line to get whatever my mom might be bringing. She's a farmer's wife and her meals are hearty and delicious! Hope you Enjoy!
