My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have two favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes that I love and this is one of the two.  These cookies turn out well at high altitude.  They aren't too flat or buttery.  They're perfect!

Update 8/31/12:  These are still my favorite cookies!  I posted this recipe four years ago and we're still making them at my house.
