Yummiest Chocolate Chip Cookies. Ever.

My Mom is the best cookie maker ever. I don't know how she does it but they turn out to perfection every time. I've made them with her a million times but every time I attempt them myself they're not quite as good. We've always joked in our family that she keeps a secret ingredient hidden so she will always be the pro. But, I have picked up a couple tricks since watching her. Like, DON'T over mix. I may have the reputation to beat things to death when I cook. I can't help it, I have this weird need to mix and mix and then the texture is never right...So now when making these cookies I mix the dough until it's barely mixed together. Trust me it's the best. I also have to turn my oven down to 325 instead of 350. This could definitely be because my oven is old, and lame, and burns everything. So, I turn the heat down and cook them until they look a little doughy. By the time I get them out and let them sit on the pan a couple minutes, they are cooked just right. Now time for the recipe...
