Ingredients: [makes about 30 cookies]
1 cup of butter, softened (2 sticks)
2 cups of packed light brown sugar
1 cup of sugar
4 large eggs
2 tsp. of almond extract (this is KEY!)
4 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour.
2 tsp. of baking soda
2 tsp. of salt
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips. (can use milk chocolate if you prefer)
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy
Beat in the eggs and almond extract
Next, combine the flour, baking soda and salt...add this to the creamed mixture of butter and sugars and mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips
On a greased baking sheet, spoon dough into tall balls (so they are under baked on the inside, chewy on the outside)
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 min. or until light golden brown on top.
