My Mom's World Famous Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

So it has come to be somewhat of a tradition that my mom has started.  It started off as a kid I would love Chocolate Chip Cookies from Double Tree Hotel in Phoenix next to her work. Well my Mom found this Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe which she has been using since I was just a young lad.

When I went away to the Military at 18 she would send me care packages with the World Famous Chocolate Chip cookies. I kept requesting these care packages every time she visited or sent a package.  When I started working in Europe I would start bringing them into the office to share with my co-workers who all fell in love with them.  To this day I think my old co-workers miss my Moms Cookies more than me :)
