Our Family Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I have been using this recipe since before my kids were born, and from the time they could reach the counter to make these cookies themselves, they have been using it too. We occasionally try new cookie recipes, but always end up coming back to this one. My kids asked me to post it for them to look up while they are away at college.
