Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Beat the butter for a minute until it is fluffy.
Add the granulated sugar and the brown sugar to the butter. Mix until well blended.
Next add the eggs and vanilla to the mixture. Let it blend completely.
Next combine the salt and baking soda in with the flour and add into the mixture in two parts.
Next add in your chocolate chips on the lowest setting possible. Only mix for about 15 seconds.
Drop rounded tablespoons of cookie dough onto a greased pan about two inches apart. ( you can even pack the dough into a baking sheet and create a cookie cake, I did both).
Cook for 10- 12 minutes. If you are making a cookie cake it may take 5 minutes longer than the single cookies.
This is the cookie cake. Let it sit and cool completely until you remove from the pan.
Let the cookies cool on a wire rack.
