Chocolate Chip Cookies - Better Than Nestle's Premade Dough

“This recipe is from the 1961 Better Homes & Garden cookbook. Ever since making them I haven't a need for pre-made dough. Makes small amount so you may want to double. MY TIPS: Use a hair less than salt required. Use dark brown sugar. Scoop the flour in the bag (rather than pouring into the cup) with dry ingredients in separate bowl and wisk together. For thinner cookies and if doubling use 1/4 + 1/4 salt.”
