Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, place softened butter or margarine, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Mix with an electric mixer until creamy. In a medium-sized bowl, place flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir with a whisk or eating fork to combine. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Stir using a wooden spoon. Dough will be stiff. Add chocolate chips. Stir with wooden spoon. Place dough into level 1/4 cup measuring cup. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheets 2 inches apart (about 9-12 on a tray).
