Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are buttery, thin, and almost lacy.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup flour (add more flour if you want a thicker, firmer cookie)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

1 cup chocolate chips

Mix the first 5 ingredients together; blend well. Sift the dry ingredients, add to the butter mixture. When well mixed, fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. 

Bake at 375 F. for 8 to 10 minutes. These will be soft when taken out of the oven, so you may want to leave them on the cookie sheets for a minute, but any longer on the sheet will make them harder to remove.  Makes 2 dozen.
