Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a rather standard recipe (the ANSI cookie, if you will) for chocolate chip cookies.

Heat oven to 350°F. Cream together butter/margarine, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoon on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden-brown.
