Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Sift dry ingredients through a colander to separate the chocolate chips from other ingredients. Beat 1 cup of unsalted butter or margarine in a medium bowl. Beat sifted ingredients into butter until blended. In a small bowl, beat 1 egg with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix beaten egg mixture into butter mixture until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop teaspoonsful of batter, spaced well apart, onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

Makes 4 dozen cookies.
