Have A Cookie!

I know that there are a million claims to the best chocolate chip cookie recipe.  And I don't know if there coupld possibly be THE very best one but around here my aunt Chandra's recipe is pretty popular.  It is my friend Lindsay's birthday today so I packaged up some of these yummy goods just for her. {You should be able to eat as many cookies as you want on your birthday.} If you are in the mood to try them out I'm posting the recipe just for you!  Oh and last night we tried sprinkling the dough with sea salt before baking...  Um.  YUM!  Adds a whole new level to how good these cookies are.  So whether you are trying out this recipe or using your own and you go for that whole salty/sweet thing, I highly recommend adding a little sea salt to your cookie!

One other cookie tip!  I cream the butter and sugars for 3-5 minutes.  After that I only mix until incorporated.
What are your cookie tips?!
