BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe came from my friend Amy, who did a 3 week chocolate chip cookie "taste test". She invited friends and for three Mondays in a row, tested out a boatload of recipes. They were judged on taste of the dough as well as the finished cookie.  This was the first place winner.  :-)

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
2 3/4 flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 bag (2 cups) chocolate chips
1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix butter and sugar until smooth.
3. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix the buttery/egg mixture for a full THREE minutes.
4. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, and chocolate chips. Make sure to not over stir.
5. Use a standard- sized cookie scoop or about 2-tablespoon sized balls, drop dough onto baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes or until light brown.
6. Sprinkle a bit on sea salt on the top of each cookie. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
