Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe, I believe, is used by my grandma green, whom I love dearly, and passed down to my mama, and tweaked by me. Hope you enjoy!

1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 1/3 c. butter
2 eggs
2 T. honey or corn syrup
1 T. vanilla
3 ¼ c. flour
1 t. baking soda
¾ t. salt
12 oz. chocolate chips

cream together sugar, brown sugar, and butter, until completely smooth; make sure to scrape bottom of the bowl
add eggs to butter mixture and blend thoroughly, scrape bottom of bowl, then add vanilla and honey, mix well
add about half the flour, mix thoroughly, then add the rest of the flour with the baking soda and salt mixed in; the dough should just barely be dry enough so it doesn’t stick to your fingers
add chocolate chips
use a spoon, or a cookie scoop; you should fit about 12 on a buttered pan; bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes, until edges are just turning brown; if the bottom of your cookies tend to brown, put a sheet of foil under your pan, shinny side down.

*Personally I like semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips, but use whatever you like! How I get the cookies to have a perfect shape everytime, which, is soooo tricky, I'm not sure why chocolate chip cookies always turn out different, but it's the temperature of the oven and whether or not you have foil under the pan. Sometimes you just have to play around with your oven to find out what works best. Good luck!
