Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here are two recipes. Both are really good but I'm a little partial to the Nancy Taylor Cookies - named after MTN's friend who's recipe it is. I switched to the Taylor recipe from my chipper recipe but you choose. The only problem for me with the Taylor recipe is it calls for Bisquick and I just about never have it on hand. D asked for a chocolate chip cookie recipe so I hope this helps.

1 c. butter softened
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1/2 c. Bisquick
1/2 c. old fashioned oats
12-18 oz. chocolate chips (I prefer milk choc.)

1. Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla & eggs.
2. Combine (sift) dry ingredients except oats and add to creamed mixture. Mix well.
3. Stir in oats and chips, blend well.
4. Bake at 375* for 9-11 minutes.

M.S.K. Chocolate Chippers
4 sticks room temp. butter
1 c. sugar
2 c. packed brown sugar
2 T. vanilla (real not imitation)
4 eggs
2 t. baking soda
2 t. salt
12 oz. milk chocolate chips
5 1/2 c. flour (approx.)

1. Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla & eggs
2. Combine (sift) dry ingredients & add to creamed mixture, blending well.
3. Add chips (& may add nuts if desire)
4. Drop by large tablespoons onto baking sheets
5. Bake at 375* 9-12 minutes depending on how "done" you like your cookies.
Tip: If cookies are too flat, add a little more flour.
