(2 sticks) , softened (Instead of 2 sticks, I used 1 ½ and the other ½ bacon grease.)
1. Heat oven to 375°F.
2.Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired.
