Mike's Chocolate Chip Cookies
DirectionsPreheat oven to 375F and line a few baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream margarine and sugar until light.
Beat in vanilla and eggs until smooth.
Mix together flour, soda, and salt but do not sift; beat into batter.
Add chocolate chips and nuts; stir to mix thoroughly.
Drop onto lined baking sheets, using a small ice cream scoop or a heaping tablespoonful.
Bake for 12 minutes, turning sheets end for ends and trading oven racks at the halfway point.
Remove from oven and slide parchment off sheets (with cookies) and leave until the cookies are barely cool enough to handle.
Then transfer to racks to cool.
