Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have you ever been to one of the Ghirardelli stores? They are divine! My grocery store recently started selling Ghirardelli chocolate chips, and I hoped the recipe on the back of the bag for chocolate chip cookies would be as good as the cookies in their bakery. They weren't but they were still really tasty. I brought these to work for a Friday treat, and they were all eaten by 9:30 in the morning! Normally most treats last through the afternoon, but not these. The cookies themselves were cakey and had plenty of chocolate. I used half milk chocolate chips and have semi-sweet chocolate chips for added flair. 

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/8 cup granulated sugar
3/8 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter well until it is fluffy. Add the sugars and mix well. Mix in the egg. Gradually stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes until lightly golden brown.
Yields 18 cookies.
