The Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookie – Eat the dough or bake them first – your choice

My daughter Dianne loves to eat cookie dough – she has since she was young and still does at the age of 24.  She will make a batch of cookie dough just to eat it and bake a small amount for those of us who like ours cooked.  This recipe has been around for years and is attached to the popular story of Neiman-Marcus Cookies.  It does make a large quantity that can be shaped into a log and refrigerated or frozen to slice and bake at a later time or the recipe can be halved or even quartered.   I have the full recipe first and further down you will see the quantities.
