My favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just the other day, I was in the mood for a good cookie. When I said good cookie, what I meant was a good home baked cookie. I had a few packets of store bought cookies in the kitchen, but that just wasn't doing it for me. I couldn't bear the thought of eating even one of those. Thats really strange, since I've never had this happen to me before. So I guess from now on, I'll be baking more cookies than picking them up from the store. I figure its also healthier, since they will be baked from scratch and I'll know exactly what I'm eating.

I happened to be browsing a very interesting site. I love the recipe collection and I know for sure that I'll be trying out more than a few. Anyhow, they happened to have a recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I decided to give it a go. Turns out I think I've found the recipe for my favorite chocolate chip cookie. The earlier recipe I had tried paled in comparison to the result I got with this one. The cookie turned out just right and (can you believe it) not too sweet. I halved the recipe and got about 25 cookies. Whats your go-to Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe?
