Neiman Marcus Cookies (no really - this is the real recipe)

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee, slightly crushed
8 oz. semisweet chocolate chips

Cream the butter with the sugars until fluffy.  Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract.  Combine the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Drop by large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or 10-12 minutes for a crispier cookie.

Mrs. Field's Chocolate Chip Cookies (a good impression of them at least)

1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 twelve-ounce bags semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla.  In another bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.  Combine the wet and dry ingredients.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  With your fingers, place golf ball-sized dough portions 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 9-10 minutes or just until edges are light brown
