1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
`1 cup chocolate chips
Combine butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
In another bowl (I use a piece of wax paper so I don't dirty a bowl) Combine flour, baking power, baking soda, salt.
Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture.
Divide the dough in half.
On a greased baking sheet shape each portion of dough into a 15 x 3 in rectangle.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over top and press into dough
Bake at 375 for 6-9 minutes. Less time if you want softer cookies, longer if you want crispy.
Cool 5 minutes before cutting into 1 inch strips with a knife. Let cool on a rack.
