Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies

I have a personal list of my top 15 favorite cookie recipes, and this has been Number 1 for years. I cannot remember where I got the recipe from, but it is a good one. I made a platter a few months ago for a friend giving a luncheon at her job, and the cookies were almost gone before people even finished the entrees. People were coming into the room, grabbing handfuls and pocketing them, thinking nobody was watching. I have to admit, I was very flattered! Note: The recipe calls for 4 sticks of butter or margarine. Do not substitute anything else, like oil, or shortening, or applesauce -- it just won't be the same. I use either all butter, or often will use 1/2 butter and 1/2 margarine, with no loss of quality in the results. The recipe halves easily.
