Mrs. Field’s Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp. Pure vanilla extract
2 cups (12 oz.) Semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven 300 degrees


In medium bowl combine flour, soda and salt. Mix well with wire whisk. Set aside.


In a large bowl with an electric mixer blend sugars at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down sides of the  bowl. Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix at medium speed until light and fluffy.


Add the flour mixture and chocolate chips, and blend at low speed until just mixed. Do not overmix.


Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 22-24 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer cookies immediately to a cool surface with a spatula.
