My Favorite Chocolate Chip cookies

I love these cookies, it's a little more work than regular chocolate chips cookies but they were so great. they also took no time at all using my brand spankin new Kitchen Aid Mixer! Oh wait you didn't know I got one, yes and it's black and it's the professional mixer that will be able to mix anything up to 14 cups of flour! It's so amazing. Gary bought it for me like two months ago and held on to it until he wanted to give me it... He knows I have been wanting one for 5 years, so for Easter he had me go on an Easter scavenger hunt, it was so fun, at the end of it was my stand mixer! I was so ecstatic! So my post might have a bunch of baking recipes from my new Mixer.
