Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love to try new chocolate chip cookies that people say are their favorite.  I saw this recipe on the Sisters' Cafe and gave it a try. 

I made these for my hubby to take to church to give to the men in the class that he was teaching.  (I also made some Neiman Marcus cookies too, just in case these cookies didn't turn out).  The cookies turned out great!  I'll definitely make them again.
