Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

My brother and I grew up eating these cookies.  Mom made them once a week.  My biggest memory is coming home to the smell of these delicious cookies baking and sitting on the counter was a cup of cookie dough.  One for me and one for my brother.  We would indulge ourselves with the uncooked dough and then continue our indulgence with the cookies.  I hope you try them out and enjoy them as much as we do.  Every time I make them, I am taken back to childhood.  Just the smell of them is home.
