Mrs. Field's Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2-cups flour
1/2-teaspoons baking soda
1/4-teaspoon salt
1-cup dark brown sugar
1/2-cup white sugar
1-cup salted butter; softened
2 large eggs
2-teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2-cups (12-ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
Mix well with a wire whisk and 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 the 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; blending at low speed just until mixed.  
Do not over mix.

Drop by rounded Tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I always use parchment paper); 2-inches apart. 

Bake for 22-24 minutes or until golden brown.

Transfer cookies immediately to a cook surface with a spatula upon removing from the oven.
