Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

It was my boss' birthday last week and I am such a good employee that I made her favorite - chocolate chip cookies!  Everyone at work who tried them love them.  I think this recipe has to be one of the best chocolate chip cookies I've made.  The cookies are not too thin.  They are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.   Somehow this recipe has been the best and the cookies are absolutely delicious!  

Here are two of my previous chocolate chip cookies recipes (among several other cookies recipes):

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies - These cookies are thinner, chewy in the middle and crisp on the outside.

Chocolate Chip Cookies - These cookies are soft and chewy.
